Gardening Programs for Kids at Queens Botanical Garden


QBG’s Gardening Programs for Kids bring together youngsters ages 2 to 14 from around New York City to enjoy seasonal, hands-on learning and gardening experiences year-round. The young gardeners explore concepts of ecological balance, sustainability, and conservation as they learn how to prepare soil, select seeds and plants, and care for and later harvest their own vegetables, flowers, and herbs that they turn into nutritious and delicious snacks in the classroom. Kids explore these concepts at age-appropriate levels within each of the three programs offered. QBG strives to create an immersive experience in all of its programs—a blend of structured and freeform exploration designed to provide children the supports they need to express their natural curiosity.
