Free children’s gardening programs are well underway at the Pierce County Master Gardner Demonstration Garden, led by Pierce County Master Gardeners. All activities are designed knowing children will be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The goal is to have families attend the programs together, so all can learn about the wonderful world of gardening.
The Jack and the Beanstalk Garden is a place where magical things happen. The programs are free, and prior to each event, registration begins at 12:45 p.m..
The next program is slated for Saturday (June 27) at the Demonstration Garden, titled “Are there Amphibians in your yard?” It asks the questions of whether you should invite an amphibian into your yard and defines what frogs are amphibians and what exactly amphibians are.
The programs last through out the summer, and include:
• July 11: Teeny Tiny Creatures in your Garden, part 3. What has 8 legs, 8 tiny eyes, makes silk and lives in my garden? Come and find out what it is and how it helps us!
• July 25: Grandma's Garden. Explore tradition, treats, plants of days gone by and everything that makes grandma's place great.
• Aug. 8: Garden Sensations. Investigate the garden using all your senses.
• Aug. 22: Treasures of the Garden. Come have a swashbuckling good time searching out all the treasures in the garden with pirates and land lovers!
