Feb 01, 2015 06:49AM
Riverview Nursery and Garden Center, in Temple, will begin a yearlong Junior Gardener Program on February 28. Designed for children between 8 and 12 years old, the classes are held one weekend per month.
Created to foster children’s creativity and nurture their gardening prowess, this program educates students about the environment and horticulture. Through hands-on experience cultivating an actual garden, along with games, activities and projects, students learn about plants and animals, the seasons and sustainability. Each session can be taken alone or as part of the complete series.
Special Events Coordinator Nadia Perfect-Riznyk says, “With an emphasis on seasonal activities, the kids will be doing an array of things from seed starting and transplanting in the spring, to making sun prints and completing scavenger hunts in the summer, to pumpkin painting and harvesting in the fall, to creating fairy gardens and bird feeders in the winter.”
Cost: $35 membership fee plus the cost of supplies for some classes. Location: 3049 Pricetown Rd. For more information, call 610-929-5049 or visit RiverviewTree.com.
