Children Enjoy Fall Pumpkins Class at The Gardens

Monday, October 31st, 2011

On Saturday, children participated in our Fall Pumpkins class at The Gardens. These youngsters tested pumpkins to see if they rolled, sank or floated. They acted out a play about how the pumpkin grows from seed to fruit on the vine. They tasted roasted pumpkin seeds and even planted their own mini 3 Sisters garden to take home!

Make your plans now to join us for our next special children’s class, Winter Evergreen Explorers, coming up on December 17! Click here for more information and to register today!
