Summer Camp

Mini Gardeners Summer Camp

Get ready to get your hands dirty!  Learn to grow your own food in the beautiful Sherman Gardens.  Our Garden Educators will introduce you to the tasty plants in our gardens, help you to plant your own delicious mini-garden and teach you the basics of plant care.  The camp includes a variety of fun and creative planting projects to take home including a mini-veg planter and recycled paper pots project.  

Our mini gardeners will go behind the scenes, meet our Sherman Horticulturists, and learn in the garden before the public arrives.  This STEAM based camp will develop skills of observation, design, and practical plant care.
