Saturday, Teacher-Workday & Holiday Programs

 

In addition to our SEEDlings After-School Enrichment Program, SEEDS hosts workshops and programs for kids, grades 1-5, throughout the year. Below are our upcoming events, and stay tuned for more to come!

Registration will open on September 12th for these programs.  Please contact Heather Hill with questions.  hjhill@seedsnc.org

First Frost Saturdays

Persimmons are said to be sweetest in the fall after the ‘first frost’!  Join us and our beautiful persimmon tree to find a little sweetness this fall as the temperatures dip.  Kids will experience autumn in the garden and learn about what grows well in cooler temperatures and how gardeners prepare for the winter ahead.  Saturdays are a great opportunity for little gardeners to partake in fun activities, such toasty bonfires and gathering herbs for hot tea.  They’ll get creative using pumpkins, persimmons, and sweet potatoes in the kitchen with our Chef Educator. You may register for just one or all Saturday events in the series.  

Saturday, October 7, 9:00-11:00am: Fall Gardening 101, Gorgeous Greens & Spiced Herbal Tea

Saturday, November 4, 9:00-11:00am: Winter Gardens, Persimmons, Soup-Making & Bonfire
