Using your senses in the garden: A kids exploratory event - Palo Alto
Date: October 6, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Contact: UC Master Gardeners
Sponsor: UC Master Gardeners, Santa Clara County, CA
Location: Palo Alto Demonstration Garden
Bring your kids for a morning of exploring senses at the Palo Alto Demonstration Garden. Through a scavenger hunt, we’ll use our sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste to learn about different plants in the garden. Following the hunt, we’ll share about what we found and spend some time discussing ideas for kid-friendly plants families can use in their home gardens. From this event, we hope families will get ideas on how to encourage kids to explore nature using their senses with the ultimate goal that kids will grow up with an appreciation for gardens, the outdoors and the environment. We will also have a limited number of plants for participants to take home for their own home gardens.
