Winter 2014 Children's Classes

All youngsters are invited to join us in the Children’s Garden this fall! 


At Wing Haven we always use literature as a starting point to explore the garden and its critters.  Come prepared to get your hands dirty as we explore the frog pond and plant vegetables and flowers.  Along the way we may even improve the garden as wildlife habitat and make it prettier for all to enjoy!


All of our programs for youngsters are taught by Cate Wittmack.  If you have questions, please call her at Wing Haven: 704/331.0664 ext. 103.


Space is limited.  Please register in advance for all programs!
