All Ages/ All Abilities Garden: Launching an Edible Garden for All Ages

Planting while learning from the past. This workshop/garden plant is intended for youth, middle-aged, and older adults – all ages and all abilities. Join us in learning how to garden and then planting the garden at the Cheney Mansion.  

As we plant the garden, we will learn the stories behind the plants. We will also learn about the growing seed saving movement and its importance to the future of edible gardens and what is happening at the Sugar Beet School House in Oak Park.

Soil, plants and tools will be provided.
