Programs begin on June 19 and will include:
Urban Nature Journaling: “Spend a mindful hour inside the meadow section of the garden, drawing, writing, or creating, using suggested prompts.”
A Family Scavenger Hunt: “Children of all ages receive a passport to Verdi Square and search for 10 native plants in the garden. Find and draw each plant in the passport to receive a junior gardener badge!”
Native Plant Paint ‘n’ Sip…Lemonade and Iced Tea: “Create a beautiful scene of Verdi Square’s native plants, all while sitting right in the middle of the Meadow section of the garden!”
Materials will be provided with donations, and all events will take place from 10-11am. See the full schedule here.
