Gardening with Children!

Here at the Coventry Village Branch, we’re gearing up for gardening season. In this week of the vernal equinox, we’ve got seedlings starting inside, a new seed library stocked with heirloom vegetable and flower seeds, and our biweekly Garden Gatherings program for youth in full swing.  

Children can join us every other Thursday for hands-on learning in our collaborative garden. Adults can join us on April 16 for seed starting for the home garden at our Earthworks program.  

In the meantime, check out some of our favorite books about gardening and growing!
