Playful Gardening with Young Children and Grandchildren

Megan Zeni

Doors open at 7:00 pm
Speaker begins at 7:30 pm

Come learn how we might prepare our garden spaces so they feel welcoming and inviting for young children to enjoy. This session will explore simple design features which encourage playful exploration of private gardens. We will also review child friendly veggies that can be strategically planted to engage children in the joys and wonders of growing and harvesting.

Giving Back to the Community

SDGC's purpose is to promote the love of gardening, to protection and conservation of native trees, plants, and wildlife, and to work for the beautification of South Delta.

We actively maintain 3 public gardens to showcase our efforts.  Members volunteer their time and plants, twice weekly.  It's a friendly way to meet other members.  We share our knowledge and skills while maintaining these gardens.

Each garden has a lead gardener to coordinate efforts.  Join us; have fun digging in the dirt and learn as you go.
