A Quick Parent-Child Workshop Photo Essay

On April 17th, GROWINGGARDENS staff and volunteers presented the first parent-child workshop of the season at Parkrose Heights Community Garden.  Five families attended (including 8 children) and spent a cloudy Saturday morning learning about garden planning/design and planting seeds.

Check out the photos below (taken by the lovely Jane Turville of the Parkrose Heights Garden Committee)! And many extra thanks to Jane and Bill Gates of Parkrose United Methodist Church for being amazing workshop hosts.

Acting out the plant life cycle:

Little sprouts

Baby leaves: Cotyledons for those asking…

And a few fallen fruit.

Some excellent garden designs for everyone.

(Including many watermelons and strawberries).

A quick story about seeds, and then on to the best part…

Planting some seeds together.

A great way to spend a cloudy spring morning.
