Children’s Garden

The Children’s Garden was established in 2004 as part of the garden’s 30th birthday celebration.  Children’s learning opportunities include sessions during the growing season for pre-schoolers to look at worms, plant seeds, water and harvest their produce and flowers.  The programs are open to children in the neighborhood and designed for the child 2-6 years of age.  Notices are usually posted at the Newark Playground, and an e-mail list is maintained for parents wanting to be notified of dates and times.  The children’s garden and programs are coordinated by volunteers from the Newark Street Community Garden.  For more information or to be included on the e-mail list please contact  Susan Akman <susanakman@yahoo.com>.
