Summer Gardening Fun for Families

Children who like to dig in the dirt and plant things have a special place reserved for them to grow at the Community Organic Garden on our campus.

You and your children are invited to join other families in the enriching experience of growing food together. Accompany UM-Dearborn student interpreters to learn tips and techniques involved in sowing, tending, and harvesting organically grown vegetables. We’ll also have fun exploring soil, worms, composting, garden creatures, and pollination at the beautiful and interesting Community Organic Garden on the UM-Dearborn campus.

The program fee is $35 per child. One adult guardian must attend each session with their registered children. This program is for children 6-8 years of age and their parent.  The 2019 garden program is scheduled to meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on the following dates:  June 4, 11, & 18; July 2, & 23; August 6, 20, & 27.
