Youth and Family Education

With its relatively small size and secure location, the garden is an ideal environment to explore with young children. The diversity of plant life helps children develop a sense of wonder about the world around them, and the naturalistic design of the garden helps them become comfortable in the outdoors.

Garden Tots

tot

Drop in any time between 10 am and 1 pm with your young children every Friday in the summer for a fun nature exploration in this unique, naturalistic garden. Each week we offer a simple plant activity, a themed garden exploration, and a craft project.

$7 per family, free for KBGF Family level members. Ages 2-6.
