NJBG will sponsor a hands-on Children’s Container Gardening Workshop at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden, on Sunday, May 18, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Join Nancy Cochrane and Master Gardener and educator Olga Newey in the Carriage House Visitor Center to explore the fun of gardening. Kids will learn about growing veggies and plant a container to take home. All materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring gloves.

This workshop is for children ages 8 to 16, and those under 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. The fee is $10 for NJBG members and $15 for non-members.

For more information and to reserve your spot in the workshop, call 973-962-9534. Reservations are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome, space permitting.

NJBG is located on Morris Road in Ringwood. Visit www.njbg.org for more information.
