City Farmer After School Program and Growing Up Green

On Tuesday afternoons, your children can experience the life of a farmer in the Edible Schoolyard at the Greensboro Children’s Museum! Planting, harvesting, digging, composting, and preparing a snack with fresh ingredients from the garden are part of the fun times in store for the young farmers.  The program sometimes includes rabbit and chicken care, trees to climb, worms to handle, and fresh tastings of food in the garden.  This is a drop off opportunity for children with a fee of $10 for a two-hour program.  It is open to children in kindergarten through 5th grade from 3 to 5 pm.

For younger visitors and their caregivers (or for older children and their caregivers who just want short family time in the garden) we offer a free short program “Growing Up Green” on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:30. The activities vary from day to day and week to week, and may include pond time or planting or fun in the fairy garden or a story.  Come on out and see what’s happening!

There’s always something to see and do in the Edible Schoolyard. Let the good times grow!
