Children and their families are welcome to join Earl Haig Little Gardeners, a free drop in program every Tuesday at 5pm, promoting gardening skills and education. Siblings, grandparents, and related adults are welcome! Reccomended ages 2-12. Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Attendees will learn about soil, insects, sunlight, water, shadows, growing their own food, food variety, harvesting, among many other topics. Attendees will regularly have harvest to take home!
This program is casual and attendees are encouraged to get dirty, ask questions, and explore nature! At the end of the season, students will be provided with a booklet that recaps the season including lessons learned and photos!
We do ask that families register all participants for the program to start and join our Facebook group- https://www.facebook.com/groups/952038432782363/. Please note that you will only be accepted into this group once registration has been confirmed. If your Facebook name and regstration name do not match, please send us a message to verify.
We're looking forward to gardening with you this season!
