April Break: Gardening Together with CitySprouts & Hummingbird Books
Tue, April 18 | 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
Join us and Hummingbird Books for an afternoon of gardening exploration with Cambridge’s CitySprouts to celebrate the release of their new book We Garden Together!, which features hands-on planting and growing activities to make nature education accessible, whether in a small yard, classroom, or community garden.
This activity will be led by CitySprouts’ founding director Jane Hirschi and will introduce kids to two garden “friends”: snails and worms and then planting seeds in a cup to take home. The activity is geared toward children ages 3 and up, but all are welcome! Jane will do two sessions, 1 PM and 3 PM. Link below is for the 1 PM session.
Tickets are $20 and include supplies for the gardening activity and a copy of WE GARDEN TOGETHER.
Jane Hirschi is the founder of CitySprouts, a nationally recognized program that provides early science and nature education in collaboration with 20 public schools in the greater Boston area. She is passionate about making sure that all children have opportunities for hands-on science education in the garden and the chance to get to know the natural surroundings in their own neighborhood. A regular presenter at conferences regionally and nationally, Hirschi has been recognized as a Social Innovator by Root Cause Social Innovation Forum and is the author of Ripe for Change: Garden-Based Learning in Schools. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
