Children’s Vegetable Garden: Spring Session
February 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Saturdays, February 22 – June 6 | 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The Garden is proud to present one of the nation’s oldest youth gardening programs. Children ages 7-16 get their hands-on horticulture with the help of our partner organizations, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners. The Children’s Vegetable Garden Program at the San Antonio Botanical Garden is an opportunity for children to grow their own vegetables and ornamental plants with the help of instructors from the Texas A&M AgriLIFE Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners, as well as other volunteer organizations. Each child is allotted a 3.5’x28’ garden plot. Children will have fun growing different types of seeds, vegetables, and ornamental annual flowers. Children can also earn their Junior Master Gardener certification by participating in fun, hands-on activities each week after they have tended their garden. Families are welcome to share the gardening experience with their child. A parent or guardian must stay with their child.
Fee: Thanks to a generous donation from our friends at Milberger’s Landscaping and Nursery, the Spring Vegetable Garden Program will be $50 per child or $80 for two children to share a plot (non-refundable). Expanded to include ages 7-16!
