Garden Buds

Frelinghuysen Arboretum, 353 East Hanover Avenue, Morris Township, NJ 07960

Instill a love of gardening in preschoolers, and maybe even dust off your own green thumb in this 6-week hands-on gardening series. Little gardeners and their adult helpers plant, harvest, and even taste vegetables straight from their gardens while learning that the fall garden season ending is just as important as the beginning. 

Cost: $75 per child with an adult.
