Free HSBC Family Day – Saturday, March 9, 2-4pm
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.
When summer arrives, the fun and learning heat up, as children make salads from their spring vegetable plantings, bake cookies in a solar oven, learn about climate and environment, raise and release butterflies, plant delicious summer vegetables, conduct scavenger hunts, build planters and terrariums and lots more!
