With Leap Year we get an extra day this February and what better way to use it than getting a leap on your gardening! Bring the kids out to learn about seed starting and how to get your garden started early this year.
We’ll be talking about what seeds need to grow, and how to get a leap on gardening even when it’s still cold outside. Each youth participant will get to start some seeds to bring home.
The content of this workshop is recommended for youth 5 and up, but all ages are welcome. An adult must stay with the child for the workshop.
