In this afterschool garden club, kids learn the basics of gardening through fun and exciting hands-on activities. Discover the secrets of soil and composting, and meet some wriggly worms. Plant veggie and flower seeds, tend seedlings and later transplant them into the Children’s Garden. Explore the Garden’s insects and birds and create wonderful habitat for them. In every class, we’ll sample fresh veggies and explore different ways to prepare and enjoy them. Take home seeds and seedlings to start a garden at home. Participants present at all sessions will receive a t-shirt and certification as a South Carolina Botanical Garden Junior Gardener.
