Straw bale gardening is a fun way to garden in small spaces or in areas with poor soil quality. Our seasons long program, is open to kids ages of 6 to 10 who would like to learn how to plant, grow and harvest gourds, pumpkins and flowers in our straw bale demonstration garden. Kids will get a chance to plant their own seeds, then come back on June 2 to plant the seedlings in their own straw bale. They will come back on July 14 to learn how to learn about pests and diseases that can affect their plants and finally, they will harvest on September 22. This is a great chance for kids to get their hands a bit dirty and grow their own pumpkin for the fall. The program is free and open to 10 kids. Please contact us to sign up via facebook or by calling 207-877-5874.
