Sprout Squad!

B.B. Barns is excited to announce our new Sprout Squad

The B. B. Barns Sprout Squad activity and seminar club aims to provide curious and engaged children with opportunities to learn about the natural world through gardening under the guidance of the horticulture experts on staff.

Through our educational activities we hope to provide fun and inventive programs, inspire compassion for living things, and to foster a sense of community with and among our participants.

In today’s culture of unrelenting yet unavoidable exposure to screens and devices, we feel that it is important now, more than ever, to instill in our children a sense of appreciation and excitement towards nature.

Why Kids Should Garden:

  • Learn a life skill

  • Practice problem solving

  • Instill a sense of pride

  • Practice patience

  • Mental and physical health benefits

  • Improved awareness of nature

  • Appreciation of where food comes from
