Children's Garden Program

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 gardening tips and techniques as you maintain, grow, and harvest a variety of 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.

One adult chaperone must attend each session with the registered child. This program is for children 6-8 years of age. The gardeners meet on select Tuesday evenings between June 7 and August 30 from 6-7:30 pm.  The fee is $35 per child and covers gardening supplies.
