Gabriella & Angelica Campuzano

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is in our ninth year of getting kids outdoors to discover their environment, enjoy nature, dig into gardening, learn about natural resources, and to share art and music.  This class and programs for children provided at AVBG received the highest “Club Creativity” Award from the California Federation of Women’s Clubs and the international General Federation of Women’s Clubs for Conservation projects.  Come join us!

On January 14 our Kids in the Garden class with Farmer Jones will be our “Recycled Art” program.

We will create using recycled materials and then hike to discover the art in the Gardens. We emphasize hands-on discovery and fun for all!
