Bauer's Market & Garden Center
221 N 2nd St
La Crescent, MN 55947

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 and 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.

REGESTRATION: 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.  While registration isn’t mandatory, we highly encourage it so we do not run out of project supplies. 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!
Kids will be creating their own sunshine by planting sunflower seeds.  Once warm enough, plant outside and watch it grow!
May 4: Earthworm Hotel
Worms provide a host of benefits including soil aeration, recycle nutrients, and compost materials into the soil.  Your kids will love watching the worms hard at work!
May 11: Mother’s Day Event
Kids will make a one-of-a-kind planter for the special Mom in their life!   ***NEW TIME ADDED: We’ve added a second workshop time for this special Mother’s Day event – if you’re unable to join in the fun during normal workshop hours 8a-10a, then stop by between noon and 2p on May 11 for your second shot at having the kids create their own one-of-a-kind planter for the special Mom in their life!
