Planting Pretty


Sick of the snow and ready to grow? Find inspiration for you and your budding gardener at local spots that cater to the kiddie crowd.
Families can have a fun night out at Gardenworks in Burnaby, where there’s a special kids’ corner set up for workshops. Birthday parties can also be held here most Fridays.

During the week of March 21 (yes, that’s Spring Break), tiny tots aged 2 and up can sign up for a daily morning workshop. The kids are encouraged to get their hands dirty, ask questions and ‘stop and smell the roses’.

Program Coordinator Candyse Roberts uses themes like “Jack and the Beanstalk” and “The Little Red Hen” to catch the kids’ imagination and teach them something new about nature. Then the children all take home a pot planted with something either pretty or yummy! You can also book a birthday party or get some moms and kids together for a custom two-hour session. Cost is $10 per child with a maximum of 20 in a group.
