Garden Earth Explorers Activities

Garden Earth Explorers is an informal program that, when the children’s garden is open, takes place every Thursday and Saturday at 10:15 am March through October. While programming is postponed until further notice please enjoy some of our favorite activities that have been modified for your to stay connected to the natural world while at home.

These activities are designed specifically for ages 3-6 year olds to engage with the outdoors. Feeling soil, tasting vegetables, listening to birds, smelling herbs or looking at clouds are only a few examples of the sensory exploration that can be done in your own backyard.
