Children 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.
