Preschoolers will have fun gardening and exploring nature in this parent-and-child program. Children will learn all about seeds, flowers, vegetables and animals through stories, crafts, and planting activities in our Learning Garden and greenhouse. We'll also take time each session to explore the habitats of our gardens and forests, searching high and low for its animal residents. Each class will include a project to take home.
Erika Huber is the Youth and Family Program Coordinator for Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. She has over seven years of experience teaching children in the outdoors. Erika holds a Master of Science degree in Horticulture from Kansas State University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
