Wednesday, March 28th: Springtime Explorers
Calling all outdoor explorers! Discover what's happening in the garden and the natural world by scavenger hunting for clues. We will gather natural materials to create spring terrariums to take home, meet our composting worms and discover this amazing season through games, songs and sensory discoveries! Once we've worked up an appetite, we'll make a delicious and nutritious spring garden snack.

Thursday, March 29th: Sprout Scientists
Wear your capes and discover what’s happening in the garden as the warm weather awakens our garden plants! We’ll use our best science skills to look for signs of spring, explore seeds, plant life cycles, and how incredibly delicious fruits and vegetables taste when we make them into treats! Explore the wild world of medicinal and culinary herbs by designing and planting your own herb garden to take home. Learn about how each plant grows, what it gives us, and how to care for it. We’ll also harvest and make delicious and nutritious green smoothies to give our afternoon the extra boost of healthy eating.Create a journal to record all of your findings and continue exploring in your own backyard or garden!
