Pierce County Master Gardener Summer Garden Program for Children

The Pierce County Master Gardeners will be offering a free series of gardening classes for children through the summer and fall, to interest children and their families in the joy and fun of gardening. All classes take place in the Master gardener Demonstration Garden.

The first of this series, “Is It Finally Spring?” will introduce children and their families to the changes of the garden, getting ready for growing. What is the weather like? Can we play in the Garden today? We will make tiny green houses from water bottles, learn about which plants like what temperature (warm and cold i.e. tomatoes, lettuce) and discover what plants need to thrive including placement for sun needs, water needs, good soil. All materials provided. Program starts promptly at 1:00 P.M
