PEBC started the first Garden Club the summer of 2010.
Garden Club is a summer-long day camp, now under the direction of Naturalist Alisha Flemming, that will teach your child the "ins and outs" of gardening, from planning their garden to planting to watering to harvesting.
Regular club sessions meet most Tuesdays from 8:00-10:00 a.m. during summer days on the dates listed below and meet after school starting in August.
Club gardeners will gather one day each week to care for their garden and do a wide variety of fun activities such as decorating their produce bags for garden goodies, create garden flags, butterfly feeders, and a fairy garden just to name a few! They’ll learn to make healthy foods using the garden’s produce and sample yummy snacks made from garden herbs and veggies like lemon balm popsicles, dandelion cookies & mulberry muffins. PLUS - they’ll take home veggies they grow! Attendance at every session is encouraged, but not required.
This is an ideal opportunity for youth to learn about Minnesota's agricultural heritage first-hand as they experience the joy of digging their hands in the soil and the fun of picking and eating produce they raised themselves. Please see links below for more information.
We wrapped up our 2014 season on October 6 and enjoyed our Family Garden Party on Saturday, October 11.
