The Dirty Dozen Garden Club

Helping children form ethical and emotional bonds with nature is known to help them developmentally.

Appreciating nature

Come interact with other toddlers and learn to be comfortable in our natural world! Join us as we get down and dirty while exploring the garden and beyond.

For two to four year-olds and their parents (or grandparent, daycare provider, etc.!) Join us on:

  • Fridays, May 20 through June 24
  • 10:30-11:30 a.m.
  • Map
  • $3 per child per session
