Winter Gardening For Kids


Share post:

MyVeronaNJ-Kids-GardeningWith another blizzard on the way toward New Jersey, it doesn’t seem right to be thinking about gardening. But the Essex County Environmental Center has plans to hold a “Green Thumb Club” program on winter gardening on Wednesday, February 10.

Aimed at children ages 5 to 10, the program will demonstrate how to start plants indoors during the winter in three different types of soil. The class takes place at 4 p.m., but you have to register in advance registration by calling the Environmental Center at 973-228-8776. The cost is $5, plus a $2 materials fee per child.

The Essex County Environmental Center is located at 621B Eagle Rock Avenue in Roseland, across from the driving range.
