“Branching Out”

The Frelinghuysen Arboretum, 353 East Hanover Avenue, Morris Township, 07962.

Ages 10 – 13.

“Branching Out!” is the hands-on gardening program for young people who are encouraged to play in the dirt. This fun, educational program takes place on nine Saturdays mornings in the spring.   The children learn with a little hard work in their own garden beds, and a little more patience, the food you grow tastes much better!  Time to get digging and get dirty.

Cost: $180 per child.
