The Garden School Foundation’s City Seedlings Summer Camp is an invigorating, holistic weeklong program encompassing elements of nature exploration, cooking, science, gardening and art! City Seedlings Campers will spend a week in our beautiful 1-acre kitchen garden and outdoor laboratory in the Historic West Adams neighborhood. Campers spend each morning planting, harvesting, and preparing lunch fresh from the garden; and each afternoon making garden crafts, playing games, exploring the wonders of nature, and forming new friendships!
