Final Weeks of Open Gardens

The summer is flying.  We are having so much fun exploring, creating and harvesting during Open Garden events.  Attendance has been wonderful. If you haven’t made it yet, you will want to be sure to join us for one or all of our last four weeks of Open Gardens this summer.

There are fun and engaging activities planned for all of our events.  Each Tuesday from 4:30 to 6:30 pm and Thursday from 8:30 to 10:30 am you will be able to attend an event at one of our school gardens.  The location will rotate from garden to garden throughout the summer. These events are FREE and open to the public.
