Phoenix Fresh Veggies FOR KIDS!: Plant up a Pot with Fun and Crazy Edibles 

There is nothing like growing your own vegetables as a child to encourage healthy eating, to build a strong relationship with living things, and to experience the joys and flavours of eating locally.

That line was for the parents. This is for the kids: How would you like to grow your own crazy and fun veggies in your own backyard? In this workshop we'll show you purple, pink and yellow tomatoes, rainbow-coloured greens, squash and cucumbers that grow on bushes, spinach that grows on vines, blue squash and blue potatoes, white pumpkins, peas with blue pods, white eggplants, and much more. Then you'll get to plant up your own veggie container to grow at home!

Please bring your own large pot (minimum 12-14 inches in diametre) with enough space for at least 3 to 5 one gallon perennials. A large, black, seven gallon plastic pot can be provided at an additional cost of $7. Please order your pot when you book your workshop. The price of the workshop includes your potting mix but not the plants you use. 

Recommended for children ages 4-10. A parent or guardian must accompany your child or children. | Instructor: Kate | $12 + tax for one parent and child. $5 + tax for each additional child. |
