Children's Garden Program

The Community Organic Garden at the EIC offers a gratifying hands-on experience for young gardeners to make friends, learn, and grow a variety of plants in their own garden plot.

Children's GardenChildren and an accompanied adult 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.


Program Requirements:

1. One adult chaperone must attend each session with the registered child.

2. This program is for children 6-8 years of age.
