Parents and grandparents: Here’s a chance to let your kids get down and dirty in an educational setting that’s fun. It’s the Children’s Gardening Club, and it meets Saturday from 9 to 10:30 in Lake Park’s Community Garden.

The program will teach them all about dirt – why it’s important to have good dirt to grow in, how to compost, water, start seeds, transplant, and how to ID bugs.

Kids get to see food plants, harvest some that are fruiting, and help plant new vegetables.

It’s free and open to all. Families can buy a garden plot for planting their own garden for $20.

Lake Park Children’s Garden Club
