Children are invited to explore Renfrew Institute’s four-square garden in the Summer Institute program, “Down a Garden Path.” The program, designed for children completing grades K–3, will be held from 9:30–11 a.m. on Thursday, July 18 at Renfrew Park in Waynesboro.
Renfrew Institute’s garden expert, Doris Goldman, will guide children as they look for hidden treasures and hunt for butterflies.
“Join in the fun as we harvest, plant seeds and discover ladybugs and other garden critters,” Goldman said. “Take home your own mini-garden and a garden craft, and learn to ‘make rain’ with watering bells. We’ll water, dig, pick and play!”
Kids should wear shoes and clothes that can get dirty.The cost is $4 per child for Renfrew Institute members, and $5 per child, non-members. Pre-registration not required, and participants should arrive 15 minutes early to register at the Visitors Center.
