Spring 2019 Children’s Vegetable Garden Program
Saturday mornings, March 2nd through June 15th, from 8:00 AM – 12:00 Noon
Registration is now open!
The Children’s Vegetable Garden Program at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, one of the nation’s oldest youth gardening programs, is an opportunity for children aged 7-16 to grow their own vegetables and ornamental plants with the help of instructors from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners. Children will have fun growing different types of seeds, vegetables, and ornamental annual flowers and can also earn their Junior Master Gardener certification by participating in fun, hands-on activities. Be prepared to learn from area gardening experts and bring home lots of vegetables!
Fee: $40 per child or $60 for two children to share a plot
In order to gain the most from the learning experience and to help ensure successful growing, participants are required to attend all sessions (two absences are allowed). Families are welcome to share the gardening experience with their child. A parent or guardian must stay with their child.
