description: It's harvest time at GCM! Ages 3-5 will get hands-on with nature as they explore The Edible Schoolyard, the Museum's half-acre garden. Learners will focus on a different theme each week as they play, explore and make friends along the way.

·      Flowers:  We will explore beautiful blooms in the garden and identify the parts of a plant.

·      Soil:  We will get our hands dirty as we take a closer look at the soil.

·      Seeds:  We will learn about the basic needs of plants as we sow seeds in the Edible Schoolyard for a later harvest.

·      Water:  We will explore the wonder of water in the garden.

·      Chickens:  We will learn about chickens and visit our feathered garden friends.

·      Harvest:  It's harvest time!  Join us as we celebrate our growing season and harvest the bounty.
