Junior Botanists Club - Homeschooler edition
Does your child notice the plants around them everyday? At Sage Garden we want our junior botanists to connect with plants in a hands-on, fun-filled environment that emphasizes connection to the natural world. Each week the young botanists will meet new and fascinating plants, dig into a cool growing activity (to take home!) and get rooted in a topic using stories, games and crafts. Everything from spicy tropicals to pollinator-friendly native plants will be showcased, with an emphasis on decorative, edible and useful botanicals. Not only will our budding botanists develop new skills with home and garden planting techniques, they will have the opportunity to learn cool greenhouse tips and tricks that take their savvy to a whole new level!
Our Junior Botanist for homeschoolers runs every Wednesday, with a combined English/French language session from 1 - 2 pm. There is a discounted rate for families / groups registering 3 or more children ($17.50 per session vs. $20 per session).
If registering after October 3, registration is pro-rated to take into account missed sessions (we do this manually when processing registrations; the web system does not discount automatically).
Ages 5 - 12. Pre-registration required. All activities take place at Sage Garden.
