Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is in our eighth 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 just received the highest 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 August 13 our Kids in the Garden class with Farmer Jones will be our “Water Is Wonderful” program.  We will create bubbles and paintings, work with ice and evaporation, discover compost and use it in planting, make mud and float sailboats. We will share ways that we can save water every day. We emphasize hands-on discovery and fun for all!

Class time for the August 13 Kids in the Garden Class is from 10 am to 12 noon.  The class fee is $5 per child for two hours of FUN and LEARNING; fees support the development of the Alta Vista Children’s Garden. Adults will stay with their children and pay the $5 Garden entry fee.

  1. Thank you Vista Press for your continued support of our Kids in the Garden class! We always have a great time outdoors with kids and families. Our August class is a good time to get a little bit wet – learn a little science – and get to know Alta Vista Botanical Gardens. The Gardens are open every day – 14 acres to walk, enjoy sculptures, and discover some new plants. Reserve now and join us on August 13th!
