Our children's gardening program is held in a revitalized 2,000 foot section of
our the Beaches Organic Community Garden in Neptune Beach ... with a
sensory garden, raised vegetable garden beds, herbs, flowers, fruit
trees and vines, and a shade structure where we offer engaging activities. Children might harvest berries and make
smoothies with a hand-crank blender, plant seeds by the seasons, learn
to smell and taste different herbs and make medicinal salves and sachets
with them, create art projects with nature, learn about beneficial
insects and how to identify them, and so much more!
