About the Webinar

As long as you have some sun and access to water, gardening in containers lets you and your kiddos grow vegetables, herbs, flowers, and even fruit trees. A container garden can be as simple as a few pots of herbs in a window box or as elaborate as an array of large outdoor tubs with plants that rotate seasonally. You can do all your gardening in containers, or they can complement an in-ground garden space.

We’ll share how you can most successfully engage kids in container gardening and how this approach can become a cost-effective, successful, fun way to grow at school, home, or anywhere.

One lucky registrant will be chosen at random to receive a Nest container garden from our sponsor, Crescent Garden.
