During this program children (and their parents!) will learn all about the wonders of insects. In the sky and under water, Junior Entomologists will explore the local environment using nets, microscopes, field guides, and other tools that scientists use. Part of each program is spent indoors learning about the topic of the month. Then we will go outdoors for a buggy activity. Appropriate shoes are required and please dress for the weather!

Have you ever wondered about where your veggies come from? Maybe you thought about planting a garden but you don’t know how to get started. Become a Junior Gardener and you will learn that growing your own veggies is easy and fun and they taste delicious! Duke Farms Garden Educators will show our junior gardeners how to take care of the soil, grow and harvest veggies such as sugar peas, sweet carrots, colorful lettuces and plump Jersey tomatoes and then taste the food that we are growing! This “seed to fork” experience will surely make a lasting impression on your junior gardener. Classes take place outdoors in the Duke Farms Community Garden.
