Kid Friendly Edible Gardening Class at Morton Arboretum

Kid Friendly Edible Gardening 

New year, new journeys right? This one finds Lil Miss (my youngest daughter and Sir Twizzlers twin) and I partnering up with Morton Arboretum to teach a class about our love for gardening! She’s super excited about this opportunity, and I’m equally as excited to watch her talk about our community gardening initiative. She’ll be teaching a course on kid friendly edible gardening, and I will be her assistant.

Yes. You read that right. We’re teaching a class, and we want YOU to join us. To get all of the details out of the way, I can let you know that it will be Saturday, March 24 at 9:30 am and the cost is $39 for members and $46 for non-members,  and you’re in for a treat! Class will consist of plants that are easy for both children and adults, and a project to take home.
