Come join us for some April vacation fun! The Greenwich Historical Society is offering a series of educational, hands-on activities for the break.

What Will My Garden Grow?

In this workshop, students will learn about the life of a plant from seeds to fruit. Tied to our Spring 2021 Beautiful Work: The Art of Greenwich Gardens and Landscapes exhibit, curious young historians will learn how to harvest seeds, what plants need to grow and why plants are an important part of our landscape and environment.

Students will collect seeds, plant a tray of garden vegetables to bring home and pickle squash and cucumbers. Drawing on traditional New England colonial methods, we will interpret how children would have supported the family food production from field to table.

This class offers a perfect introduction to the joys (and work!) of gardening – past and present – as students grow and prepare their own food.

Masks must be worn by all attendees. Classes size maximum of 10.
Price: $15 for members, $25 for non-members
