Anyone Can Grow Food!

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.
