Learn how to propagate your own plants starting with a sweet potato you buy at the store! Sweet potatoes grow like crazy during the hot summer in Jacksonville, and you can also eat the leaves which are high in dietary fiber and delicious. Don’t miss the sweet potato pie tasting!
Elizabeth Davis, also known as Elizabeth in Overalls, loves growing all kinds of sweet potatoes, and will share her passion and knowledge for the hearty root vegetables.
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. A snack in sealed packaging will be served.
The program is free for members and only $5 for nonmembers, but space is limited. Registration is required, so we know how many supplies to provide. Please call 904-355-4224 if your child cannot attend, so we can allow those on the waiting list to take part.

Each registration includes one parent and child.
