two seedlings

April 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Bartram’s Garden
5400 Lindbergh Blvd.
Philadelphia, 19143 United States

$12

Unfortunately, this program has been cancelled out of concern for the health and safety of our Bartram’s community. As the Garden is still open, we encourage families with children to continue to visit while being mindful of maintaining healthy distance from other visitors.

Please follow our Facebook page for more updates and information. See our full statement here.


We’ll search the garden for young greens sprouts and learn about the baby plant inside of every seed, then we’ll plant a seed to grow at home.

 

Designed for toddlers and pre-schoolers, ages 2-4. One adult chaperone is required for every two children. Each session includes activities, performances, snacks, and walks through the garden, weather permitting. Please note: Program is cancelled if Philadelphia School District is closed for weather emergencies.

1st Wednesday of the month, February through November. Morning session takes place 10 am to 11:30 am. Bring a picnic lunch and join us for a FREE storytime at noon on Little Explorers days during the months of April-November. $12 per student or free for Bartram’s Garden Members at the Family-level and up.

Become a Member online or join on program day.

We offer discounted rates for our Southwest Neighbors and ACCESS Cardholders. More info here.
