Do you want to help children connect to the natural world through gardening, composting, and observing the seasonal changes happening in our local ecosystems? This workshop will explore how to create outdoor gardening activities with children ages 1-12. Participants will leave with many ideas for creating engaging garden spaces, lists of suggested plants for children, science experiments, tips for sensory explorations, and meaningful ways to get young children growing plants all year! Learning Objectives: 1. Participants will discuss ways to create learning gardens for children ages 1-12. 2.
