Family Gardening: Seed to Table

July 8, 2023 @ 10:30am - 1:00pm

We grow our gardens! Food is medicine!

Spanning across the Greenhouse Education Center’s learning garden, greenhouse, and kitchen, families are invited to learn the art of gardening, herbalism, and kitchen-skills to support healthy and happy bodies, minds, and hearts. Each week families will be welcomed into this drop-in program to craft their own home remedies, meals, and garden-inspired artworks and have informal time in the garden to weed, water, and tend to the plants.

Alternate between gardening and cooking classes to learn how to collaboratively grow, harvest, cook, and eat with the plants of the learning garden and greenhouse as you learn ways our garden can tend to our community–people to plant and bee to bird. Storytelling and introduction to the day’s theme will take place every hour at 11 and 12.

June 10 – Water is Life

Create your ollas water irrigation system for a container garden to learn about self-watering. Use water and bubbles to create fantastical art. Make flower essences using a copper sill. Water the garden, paint the rain water harvest barrel and honor the water that is life.

June 17th – Plants and People for Parks!

Join us from 10 am – 1 pm, for this special 30th Birthday of Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park, for a pollinator photo booth, lavender sachet-making, herbal bundle giveaways, a make-your-own sun tea hydration station, and open-ended garden care.

June 24th – Sunny Days and Solar Power

Create your own sun teas, cyanotype sun prints, collective sun-dial, and plant your own sunflowers to celebrate the sunny days ahead.
