Kids entering grades kindergarten through three can participate in Kids’ Summer Gardening at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
Led by gardener, and Montessori educator Laural Hardin, the class meets every Wednesday from June 5 through August 7, with a special Harvest Day in September. Each of the 11 sessions runs from 9 to 10:30 a.m. The fee is $75 per child, or $60 for PEEC members.
Laural Hardin loves teaching kids’ gardening because “A child has a natural love of all things living, so giving them a garden is magic in the making.” She’s taught gardening to elementary-aged kids and even helped to found an outdoor farm school for ages 5 through 10.
Kids’ Summer Gardening will feature garden stories, art, science and play, along with lots of time learning how to help plants grow.
