Kids in the Garden

inspired adventures in outdoor learning

Opportunities for outdoor learning abound at the Bellevue Demonstration Garden’s workshop series

One of our most popular environmental education programs designed especially for kids of all ages – Great Garden Picks for Children series are led by volunteer Master Gardeners and take place outside in the beautiful Children’s Garden at BDG. Workshops explore the many horticultural topics that engage childrens interests – like bugs, earthworms, seeds, flowers, wildlife habitat, pollinators, and tasty homegrown edibles. Even better, parents and caregivers are welcome to attend and learn in tandem with their kids. Each class also includes a fun craft activity that kids can take home with them. Our dedicated Master Gardener instructors want to help nurture the future botanist, gardener, scientist, horticulturalist, forester, or soil engineer budding inside your child.
