This series is designed to complement your existing curriculum with monthly ecology-themed, garden-based programs for students ages 5 and up. The Garden Ecology Homeschool Series is scheduled for the third Thursday of the month, September through April, and will run from 9:00 a.m. until noon.

 Each monthly program explores a science theme within the garden community. There will be formal instruction, games, guided discovery, and hands-on projects each session, as students learn “What is it?” “How does it work?” and “Why does it matter?” Programs are led by our trained volunteer staff. The schedule for the year is as follows:

September 21              Insects

October 19                  Soil

November 16              Plants

December 21               Weather

January 18                   Rare and Endangered/ Exotic and Invasive

February 15                 Birds

March 15                     Fungi

April 19                       Water

Preregistration a minimum of 2 weeks in advance of each program is required, so that we can ensure adequate staffing and program materials. The cost is $6 per student and $7 per adult, with student funding assistance available on a first-come basis. Admission to this program gives you access to the gardens all day…great for a picnic lunch and independent study! Adults who are Members of Smith-Gilbert Gardens receive free admission. For further details or to register, email info@smithgilbertgardens.com or call Smith-Gilbert Gardens at (770) 919-0248.
