ZOOM FAMILY PROGRAM: Succulents for Little Green Thumbs

Tuesday, May 25 | 3 – 3:45 pm

Discover the beautiful diversity of the world of succulent plants! Almost every imaginable size, color, texture, and form can be found in these types of plants, representing many different plant families found around the world. We’ll explore together some of their amazing features, talk about where and how they grow, and see a few of the most rare ones we have in the Garden’s collection.

Choose the “Presentation + Kit” option to pick up from the Garden Shop a prepaid child’s live succulent kit that includes a clay pot, two 2″ pot succulents of your choice, a bag of soil, and top dressing rocks. A wonderful way to connect your little one with the joys of caring for their own plant!
