Farmhand Helpers: Plant the Children’s Garden

Join us for this special edition of our Farmhand Helpers program! Come help us transplant and direct seed in the Children’s Garden!¬†This is a great opportunity for kids themselves to get involved with the garden from the very beginning. Come anytime between 10am and 12pm and stay for as long as you like; each registered group will get to take home a plant start of their very own.

Additional Information: Online pre-registration is encouraged to reserve your spots. We cannot guarantee spots will be available if you drop-in the morning of the program, as registration is first come, first serve. Please call the morning of the program if you would like to drop-in to ensure openings are available at 616-735-6240. Look for our staff person in the fenced Children’s Garden space next to the greenhouse. Program registration fee covers all day admission to Blandford Nature Center (includes trails, Visitors Center, Wildlife Education Center, etc).
