Heritage Garden School & Youth Group Program
Join us at the museum to learn all about early rural settler gardeners! Explore the tools rural settlers needed to grow essential produce in their gardens in our Agricultural Museum Building before moving on to our community heritage garden to investigate the connections between gardening of the past and present. Create botanical sketches inspired by Catherine Parr Traill and plant your own heritage seeds to take home, while learning about the importance of agricultural sustainability!
This program is only offered from June 1 to September 30th and the cost is $4 per student. To book this program for your group email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bloom: Dementia Friendly Program (Coming Soon!)
Sensory Garden Senior & Adult Program
Come join us in our new quiet sensory garden area for our dementia-friendly program “Bloom”. In this program for small groups of older adults, we’ll emphasize the use of our senses to interact with the garden in and complete a variety of immersive activities. Learn about the origins of preserving flowers and plants through pressing and try your own hand at this historical pastime. We’ll conclude our program in our spacious gazebo using what we’ve learned to create unique, botanical cards that are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face!
This program is only offered from June 1 to September 30th. To book this program for your group email email@example.com
Museum Interactives (currently not open)
Interactive Farm Stand
When you visit our new permanent exhibit Rooted in Rural, make sure to check out our life sized interactive produce stand! The produce stand is made to look like the bed of an old pickup truck box. It allows for play based learning opportunities that focuses on the area’s rich history of agriculture. Learn about different produce that is grown locally, set your own produce prices and make believe you are a farm owner!
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic interactives are currently closed.
