The Friends of John Jay Homestead is partnering with INTERGENERATE to present a 6-week gardening series about planting, the growing season, and the life cycle of plants in its Teaching Garden. This class is for families with children ages 4-10. Children make the farm-to-table connection through hands-on planting and tending a vegetable garden while exploring plant parts, ecology and, of course, bugs! Food grown in the Giving Garden will be donated to several organizations supporting those in need.

The 6-week series is limited to 10 families for a fee of $175 per family.
Wait-listed families will be offered early signup for the Fall series.
Registrants: In addition to attending the one hour class on Sundays, each registered family will be asked to tend the garden during the week, one week per session.
