PEBC started the first Garden Club the summer of 2010, under the direction of Naturalist Clay Steele.
Garden Club is a summer-long day camp that will teach your child the "ins and outs" of gardening, from planning their garden to planting to watering to harvesting.
Garden Club will officially begin May 22, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. for the kick-off and continue into September. Regular club sessions meet Tuesdays from 9:00-11:00 a.m. during summer days on the dates listed below and meet after school starting in August.
Gardeners will gather one day each week (for two hours) - throughout the summer months - to care for their garden and do other fun activities such as decorating their own toad houses, making stepping stones, creating balloon terrariums and solar ovens, tin can chimes and pinecone birdfeeders, just to name a few! PLUS they will learn to make healthy foods using the garden's produce, sample yummy snacks made from garden herbs and veggies and take home the 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.
