Bauer’s Market & Garden Center is again hosting Bauer’s Busy Bees!

At Bauer’s, we believe all children should have the opportunity to see the beauty of a garden, gain basic science knowledge, experience growing mistakes, and taste garden-fresh produce!  Bring your little ones (ages 3-10) and join us for one, or all, of our Bauer’s Busy Bees events.

The Spring series will run from April 6 – June 15, from 8-10am each Saturday.  Various garden themed projects will be held each week.  Cost is 5.00/per child all supplies are provided for each project.  All projects within the Spring Series are held at Bauer’s Market & Garden Center, rain or shine.  Please dress your children appropriately for inclement weather and the potential to get dirty or messy.

REGISTRATION: while we don’t require registration to participate, it does help us plan ahead.  To make sure we have enough supplies for all children that are interested, please visit the shop section of our website or simply click the name of the event below to register & prepay online.  Once supplies are gone for that project, we unfortunately cannot do any additional projects for the day; prepayment for your children for a specific event reserves supplies for them on that date.

Spring Series
April 6: Rainbow Gardens
Children will create their very own Rainbow Garden!  Read the book ‘Planting a Rainbow’ with our Busy Bees host, Kaitlyn, or with your parent and plant a rainbow of colors that will bloom all summer.
April 13: Rainbow Gardens!
Since so many kids enjoyed reading a story with our Busy Bee host then planting their very own Rainbow Garden last weekend, we’re doing it again for those who missed it.  If you weren’t able to join the fun last Saturday, this is your second chance!  {By a show of registration, it appeared as though the Resurrection Garden didn’t have a strong following.  Due to that, we made a change for workshop theme for Busy Bees on April 13.}
April 20: Make Your Own Greenhouse
Get a head start on your garden planting by seed starting indoors.
April 27: Let the Sun Shine!
