Venue Description: Calling all young gardeners, ages 5 to 12! The HSBC Children?s Garden is a hands-on discovery program that lets children?s imaginations and knowledge blossom as they plant and harvest vegetables and flowers, visit QBG?s engaging 39 acres that include an Herb Garden and a Bee Garden, cook with the food they?ve grown and even make seasonally-themed crafts like Mother?s Day cards with seeded paper.
Popular collections are the bee and herb gardens and the Children's Garden, which offers its hands-on educational program for ages 5-12. The Senior Garden is a four-decade-old quarter-acre garden that provides members with individual areas to grow their own vegetables and flowers. Radishes, zucchini, and even pear trees are common throughout this space and members are free to take home whatever they harvest.
The Wedding Garden, available by appointment only, is a Victorian-style garden with a gazebo, footbridge, and stream--the perfect niche for a romantic wedding. QBG offers guided tours for all ages, environmental citizenship workshops for youth groups, summer internships for teens and compost workshops for local communities.
