Kid’s Class: Create an Herb Garden with Seeds & Seedlings

March 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Kid’s Class:  Create an Herb Garden with Seeds and Seedlings
Saturday, March 19th, 10 – 11:30 am
Cost $20 which includes all materials, seed, seedlings, and instructions




Let 2022 be the year that your kids and grandkids learn to cultivate an Herb Garden with seeds and seedlings.  Because herb seeds are so small, it is sometimes difficult to get them to germinate and thrive.   Also, herb seeds take longer to germinate than vegetable seeds, so it’s important to know how to and how much water is needed for them to sprout.  In this kid’s class, they will be able to create a beginning herb garden by learning to plant seeds and transplant seedlings.

What will kids learn in this class?

  1. How to grow plants from seed (even tiny herb ones)
  2. What the seeds will look like after they germinate
  3. How to transplant seedlings into soil
  4. Watering methods – how often – how much
  5. Temperatures for germination
  6. Different types of herbs and how to use them
  7. Culinary versus healing herbs
The class will be on the 12′ x 60′ back porch that is covered with an enclosure so they will be out of wind and rain. Kids can also go feed the goats and walk around the farm/play on the swing set. Parents/Grandparents are welcome to bring a lunch and enjoy time outdoors on the farm.
Note: Any parents who want to drop off older children, must sign a farm liability waiver.
