The Oregon Garden’ popular Junior Gardener’s Club series continues June 8 from 11:30am to 12:30pm with the theme “How does your garden grow?” Participants will handle “indestructible” seeds and tiny plants with delicate roots (materials provided). Everyone will plant their own personal sunflower in the Silverton Market Garden, and the growth will be measured throughout the summer.
The Junior Gardener’s Club is designed for children from ages five to 10 and offers a hands-on opportunity to learn about gardening, the outdoors, health and fitness, arts and crafts, community awareness and more. Each program lasts 1½ hours, and includes time in the Garden (weather permitting) and a hands-on theme-related project to take home. All programs meet in the Education Building, next to the Visitor Center, and then venture into the Garden. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
The cost for the program, which includes garden admission, is $7 per child and $8 per adult (all children must be accompanied by an adult). To learn more, visit http://www.oregongarden.org/programs/junior-gardeners-club/
