Starting from seeds, our gardeners will explore and learn about the steps of planting and tending a garden.  We will explore plants and foods through the sense of smell, taste, color, and texture.  Along with other budding gardeners follow the weather and how it impacts our plants and our harvesting.  Join the club on a field trip to the local farmer’s market to discover seasonal produce from local gardens.  We will learn about nutrition and discover new recipes.  Join the gardening club and enjoy good company and whole foods at their best.
