Gardener Explorer Workshops for Kids

Let your kids discover the amazing world in the garden in this workshop series hosted by the Charleston Parks Conservancy.

Class topics are:

  • Amazing Worms: These creatures turn garbage into gold-richness that goes back into the soil. Discover how they do it and how you might start a worm composting bin in your own backyard.
  • Honey Isn’t Just for Humans: The life of bees will fascinate and inform. Learn about one of bees’ most important activities, pollination. See live bees, meet a local beekeeper and learn about where they live. Discover where honey comes from and how we share in bees’ sweet success.
  • Growing Your Garden in the Air: Discover how easy it can be to grow a veggie-herb garden off the ground. Kids will decorate, plant and care for a garden throughout the four weeks.
  • Bringing the Desert Home: Learn how never-thirsty plants can thrive on your windowsill. Plant a cool garden you can take home and learn how to make it thrive under your care.

Classes are 3:30-4:45 p.m. Wednesdays, March 23, March 30, April 6 and April 13 at Hazel Parker Playground. This class is for children ages 6-10. Cost is $75 for the series, including all supplies and materials. Class size is limited.
