The Youth Gardening Program at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston is for children in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Students learn first-hand how plants grow, as they plant, care for, harvest--and eat!--their own vegetables and flowers. Cooking and crafts are favorite rainy day activities; a sunny day might include a nature walk or scavenger hunt in addition to gardening. Participants witness the results of their own efforts, enjoy the natural
beauty of Tower Hill Botanic Garden - and get dirty, too!
Summer classes are on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, July 10 - August 23. For more
