Lil’ Sprouts Club

Lil’ Sprouts Kid’s Club 2018 Class Guidelines

Swan River Gardens is proud to present the 10th year of Lil’ Sprouts Kid’s Club. We are excited to offer classes for kids who are interested in gardening or want to learn more about the beauty and art a garden can provide. We are pleased to offer a schedule that touches on many aspects of a garden. Without further ado, we present the basic guidelines for Lil’ Sprouts Kid’s Club and our class listing for 2018.

  • Classes are designed for kid’s ages 4-12 years old.
  • Class fee is $10; this is to cover our class materials.  The class fee is non-refundable.
  • There are a limited number of seats for each class so it is on a first come first serve basis.  Be sure to sign up early!
  • You may sign up for multiple classes.
  • Classes are about 1 hour long.
  • Parents are welcome to help their Lil’ Sprout but it’s not necessary!
  • Our classes are taught by experts in gardening from Swan River Gardens.
  • Since classes are held both inside and outside, the kids need to be dressed appropriately for the weather. Our Sprouts get dirty sometimes too so leave the good clothes at home!!

All of us at Swan River Gardens can’t wait to share our knowledge and enthusiasm for the garden with our Lil’ Sprouts Kid’s Club members.  We are sure to have a lot of fun!  Remember “Swan River Gardens: Where good things grow”!!

Lil’ Sprouts Kid’s Club 2018 Class Schedule

April 21st 10:00-11:00 am (Saturday) – Mr. or Mrs. Grass Head
Instructor:  Swan River Gardens Experts!
We’ve all heard of or even played with a Mr. Potato Head….Right? Well, you’re in for a treat because this Lil’ Sprouts class is the Garden Version of Mr. Potato Head. Yep, that’s right, a Mr. Grass Head! With the use of Mama’s Old Pantyhose, a bit of Grass Seed and a dollop of dirt, Mr. Grass Head will be born! With the creations of silly faces, this class will be full of Laughs and Giggles!

May 19th 10:00-11:00 am (Saturday) – Mini Farmer’s Garden
Instructor:  Swan River Gardens Experts!
Did you know Old MacDonald had a Mini Farmer’s Garden before he became a rancher? It’s true, the Mini Farmer’s Garden gave him the foundation to grow and become famous for his Barn Yard Success! Now the Lil Sprouts have an opportunity to follow in his path by building their own Mini Farmer’s Garden. The Lil’ Sprouts will be able to grow and eat their own farm fresh veggie harvest right out of their very own Mini Farmer’s Garden. So, throw on your overalls, get your muck boots ready and don your straw hat because we are about to E-I-E-I-O all the way home….to the mini farm that is!!!

June 12th 10:00-11:00 am (Tuesday) – Leaf Pigment of my Imagination
Instructor:  Swan River Gardens Experts!
n this Lil’ Sprout class, we are going to the “Printing Room” to explore the world of Gelatin Leaf Printing. Now, we are not talking about the J-E-L-L-O kind of Gelatin or even using computers to do our printing. Nope! In this Lil’ Sprout class, we will be traveling back to the good ole days when printing was done by hand. With the use of clear Gelatin, we will create Printing Pads for the Lil’ Sprouts to make their very own Leafy Printmaking Art. This will “Positively” be a super awesome adventure!
