This Spring the Hamilton Park Children's Community Garden will launch "Small Green Thumbs", a four week Children's Gardening Program to prep the garden for the summer months. Throughout the four week program children and adults will learn what goes into caring for the garden and how proper maintenance can create a beautiful space for everyone to enjoy.
The program is designed for children 5 and older. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Below is a rough schedule of activities for the four week program. Depending on weather and needs of the gardening these activities may vary slightly.
- Week 1: Deadhead spring bulbs and learn to braid daffodils, identify weeds and help to spread mulch
- Week 2: Identify and pull weeds, spread compost
- Week 3: Label plants throughout the garden
- Week 4: Join us for a wrap up of our mini garden program!
Thursdays, 6-7pm May 21st, 28th, June 4th and June 11th
Space is limited. Contact Beth if interested in joining: firstname.lastname@example.org
