We are excited to have Poppy Innovations join us for an interactive adult + child seed planting class! Bring your children and join us on May 15 to learn about the benefits of getting kids in the garden (or involved in any planting) and some quick tips on kickstarting this. During this event you and your children will learn about the functions of soil and the role of sunlight, water and nutrients in plant growth. Everyone will get  some seeds to take home and watch them grow!

Space is limited and registration is necessary for each adult and child. The cost is $10 per person, which will be reimbursed as a $10 Blush Lane coupon per attendee.  

Attendees will receive a 15% discount on registration for Poppy Innovations’ Kids Garden Club. The 10-session garden club is at the Parkdale Community Association, kicking off on May 29th (planting day) and then running every Wednesday in July and August.
