Programs & Classes

Approximately every-other-Saturday we will have events at the Garden that aligns with our mission to be Teaching Garden.  We will have both adult and children’s programs at the same time on Saturday mornings.

The Junior Master Gardener program can be used at the framework for kids programs.   They will be divided into ages: High school, middle school, elementary and below although classes not happening at the same day. There will be different focus for different age groups: Elementary programs would be very hands on for instructors with teaching about plant growth and planting etc., Middle School programs would be more student led, them contributing in their own way and High School programs would be more of a mentorship program.

The following is a representative schedule for the Adult classes:
