Green Thumbs

Through hands on exploration, students will learn how to identify some of the plants and herbs growing in the gardens and learn how they have been used over the centuries.  Highlights include a visit to our two greenhouses and a hands-on seed planting activity that students will take home to be cared for and later planted. The program concludes with story time. Program available seasonally.
