Children and their families learned how herbs can bring flavor to food and pollinators to gardens at Budding Gardeners: Herb Life on March 12.
The program, sponsored by the Wildflower Garden Circle, featured a short introduction to different kinds of herbs and three activities for children:
Constructing a booklet of herb facts and recipes.
Propagating cuttings of rosemary.
Repotting several herb varieties to take home and grow.
Budding Gardeners is aimed at children in grades 1-6 to discover gardening, conservation, and wildlife through interactive programs, crafts, and outdoor projects. Children and their parents or caregivers collaborate during a morning of healthy and fun activities.
After the activities, families enjoyed snacks and water in the Courtyard.
