Description

Join us in celebrating Spring and all things gardening with Gardens4Kids at Rainbow Play Cafe on Friday March 22nd from 10:30am to 12:30pm!

 

The workshop:

Gardens4Kids will guide you and your child through a planting exercise, as well providing your child with an understanding of gardening and healthy eating. 

 

Children will learn about the parts of a plant, worm composting, different kinds of plants in the garden, how seeds germinate, and will be guided on how to plant a seed and how to care for it.

 

The hour long session will include a story time about gardening, hands-on activities and each child gets a "gardening loot bag" to take home with them!

 

This will be an engaging workshop that will inspire participants to start their garden, big or small, this coming season.

 

Cultivating young minds

As the winter turns to spring, you and your little one can begin planning the garden you are going to grow this summer! 

 

This is the perfect setting to discover how to garden with your kids and cultivate a love for gardening that will last a lifetime.

 

Plus, gardening strengthens emotional and interpersonal skills! Children who garden learn responsibility, patience while taking care of a living plant, as well as perseverance, and how to deal with disappointment. 

 

Gift your kiddos the opportunity to learn about gardening!
