When registering, please click "select classes" above and checkmark the classes you would like to attend. This program is held indoors as well as outdoors with as much time spent outdoors as possible. Children should bring a snack, a refillable water bottle, and be dressed for the weather. Waterproof boots or shoes with a good grip are recommended as we will often be exploring over areas of rough, uneven terrain. Children should dress in warm layers and be prepared for shifts in the weather. Please note that our gardens are located atop a hill and it can be chillier and windier than at home.
