unnamedFamily Gardening: Grow A Salad Garden!
Leslie Stevens, UNH Cooperative Extension Master Gardener
Location: Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, 6 Washington St, Dover, NH
Date: Saturday, April 25, 2015
Time: 10:15 – 11 am

The Children’s Museum of NH is offering families the unique opportunity to learn to grow their own organic fruits and vegetables this spring. Join us to learn how to plant and grow your own garden salad and what you need to do to have a successful vegetable garden at home. We will plant radishes, lettuce, spinach, kale and Swiss chard. Everyone will be able sample a few of these leaves to see what they like best to plant at home. Meet an “Easter Egg” chicken and see her colored eggs.

UNH Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Leslie Stevens, owner of Sidewalk Farms in Portsmouth, will present a series of six free workshops on Saturday mornings at 10:15 am in the Children’s Museum gardens. This is the fifth year that the museum and Stevens have partnered to bring gardening information and hands-on experience to families.

Please call 603-742-2002 to pre-register to ensure we have enough supplies for all.
