Seed Sowing

Spring Break Out Day: Plantastic Plants!

Sundays, May 12-June 2, 1 - 4 pm

Join us for our 1st ever weekend Break Out Day! We’re celebrating our obsession with all things plants, both those we grow in the garden and those that bring us joy in our houses! Discover the amazing world of cacti and succulents, as we learn some basic IDs, discover how we mix soils to create great pot mixes, and propagate some common succulents to take home!  We’ll also get some seeds ready for fall sowing, give participants a chance to check out our new seed library, and discover the plant and animal adaptations from habitats around the world.  We’ll also have plant-themed door prizes throughout the day and end the day with ice cream with prickly pear syrup!
