2017 is the 25th consecutive year Master Gardener Volunteers have offered a summer gardening program for children through Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County. Growing interest in this program has led to a renovation of the garden, including a new pergola and paved walkway, hoop houses for growing early and late season vegetables, as well as identification and special care of many pollinator-friendly plants in the garden.
The session meets on eight consecutive Wednesdays. At the end of the session we have a celebratory feast using whatever we can from the garden. We find that children ages 5 and up are best suited for this program.
$70 for the first child, $35 each additional
