Growin' Gardeners

Design, tend, and harvest your very own pint-size garden plot in The Children’s Garden!

A skillful blend of award winning curriculum and physical engagement strengthens each child's bond with family and with the natural world. Each week (beginning in June) your family will receive a video lesson to watch at your leisure. Topics will include insects, weeds, worms, and plant biology. You’ll tend to your 4 x 4 garden plot at a time that is convenient for you! Staff will be available on designated days to assist.

$45.00 per family, supplies included.  At least one child must be 4 years or older, but everyone is welcome to participate.  Admission, for children, is included with the class fee.  Adults must purchase an annual admission card ($20.00).  Attendance, the first two weeks, is mandatory (by appointment) for initial planting and silly scarecrow making.  Spots are limited, and fill up fast!

Note: If you experience issues with your reservation feel free to give us a call at 989 631 2677, and someone will reach out to you as soon as possible to assist.

Cultivating Minds

Created to teach and empower families to garden and connect with their food, the Growin’ Gardeners program kicked off in 2003 with 10 family plots. Due to the program’s popularity, that number has since increased to 84 plots and now includes over 200 participants.
