Our free "Growing Gardens" program for the whole family!
Our garden series returns this summer with some new and fun hands-on activities to help families learn how to grow and harvest their own fruits and vegetables.
Join UNH Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Leslie Stevens, owner of Sidewalk Farms, for a series of free family gardening workshops Saturday mornings in the Children's Museum of New Hampshire gardens. There is no charge to participate but advance reservations are requested to ensure that there are enough materials for all participants. Call 603-742-2002 to pre-register your family.
Saturday, September 24th at 10:15am - It's harvest season in our garden, and many vegetables will be ready for harvesting including pumpkins, carrots and potatoes. Join us to pick a pumpkin, pull up a carrot and dig a potato out of our gardens. We will measure and weigh what we harvest. We’ll snack out of the garden, talk about harvesting and putting our gardens to bed for the winter, and every family will take home a pumpkin and some produce from the garden. We will also talk about worms bins for composting and why worms help keep our gardens healthy.
