 World of Wonder Nature Outing: How Does Our Garden Grow?

    ***Pre-Registration Required by March 8***

March 9 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Location details will be provided upon registration.

Why do flowers help a vegetable garden? And where do particular vegetables love to grow best? Join WOW at a community garden in the heart of Davidson. Eddie Beach, coordinator of Davidson United Methodist Church’s garden (and accomplished gardener himself!), will be on hand to show our WOW families how best to nurture a garden and grow the best vegetables. We’ll be separated into small groups so that we can see up-close how to create a beautiful garden. Bring some of your own compost materials, help plant some vegetables, then take home a seedling for your own garden. This outing is for children with their families. The minimum age is 4 years old. Wear closed-toe shoes or boots that don’t mind getting muddy. Please, no dogs and strollers. To begin the registration process, please send an email to [email protected] with the names of all the participants (parents and children), ages of the children, any allergies and a cellphone number.
