The Mukilteo Community Garden is proud to announce the introduction of the “Little Gardeners Club”.  Children ages 5 to 11 are invited to join this exciting and fun new club. Gardening opens whole new areas of exploration, awareness, enjoyment, amazement, and learning for children. The Club is dedicated to growing young minds in a stimulating environment through educational and enriching classes.  The classes are designed to bring delight in gardening with hands on projects the kids start themselves and take home to continue to watch grow or give as gifts.  The children will also plant, tend, and harvest their own vegetable bed and donate their harvest to local food banks.  The group will learn about such things as soil composition, helpful and harmful insects, the parts of plants, and the water cycle. 

The Little Gardeners Club will kick-off on April 14th at 10 am at the Mukilteo Community Garden.  Classes will be held twice a month through September.  Sign-ups and orientation will be held on Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 25 at 10 am in the Garden.  The club coordinator, Stephanie Casino, will be available to provide the curriculum and to answer any questions.  The Club is open to all, but the class size is limited, so sign-up early.  Adults are requested to stay and help out as needed, or to volunteer in the Giving Garden beds in the Garden. 
The Club is free, but the experience and lifelong learning is priceless!
