InterGenerate Teaching Garden
HOW IT WORKS:
The Salud Real Neighbors Link Family Gardening Series takes place in our Teaching Garden at John Jay Homestead. Children can learn so much in the garden! They connect with Earth; they learn that food doesn't come from a store; they have the chance to witness the magic the happens as plants grow and taste the results. As the adults learn how to plant and tend a vegetable garden, the children will be doing hands-on explorations of plant parts, ecology, and of course bugs. We will also have a chance to taste the vegetables we grow in simple preparations. The Family Gardening Series is a perfect opportunity for families to work and learn together.
There are two sessions of 6 classes each: Spring/Summer and Summer/Fall. We would like to keep the maximum number of families per class to 10.
All children must be accompanied by an adult 18 or over.
Classes are held on Sunday afternoon from 1:00 - 2:15
