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
Mental and physical health benefits
Improved awareness of nature
Appreciation of where food comes from
