Herban Adventures Kids’ Camp: Create Your Own Tiny Garden

June 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Herban Adventures is back at Tiny Diner with more amazing classes to engage your children in healthy eating and gardening! Now that we have gotten to know the plants, we’ll get the chance to grow them! In the third class of the series, we will learn how plants can be grown and cared for in our own spaces. We will plant herbs together & learn how they are helpful for pollinators and other animals. Each group will leave home with a planted herb of their choice!

This class can be taken as individually or as a three part series. Other classes take place on Wednesday June 13th and 20th from 9-11am. Classes are ideal from children 3-9 but all ages are welcome. Parents must be on-site during class times and are encouraged to attend the class. Classes will take place rain or shine. Please send any questions to Andrea at andrea.e@tinydiner.com.

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. One ticket is good for one child and up to two adults. Tickets for the 3 series class are $45 in advance or $55 at the door. Ticketing links coming soon!
