The Dade City Garden Club is launching a program to encourage the whole family to come out and play in the dirt.
The new program is rolling out in January — just in time to help the club celebrate its 75th anniversary year, according to a news release from the garden club.
The Family Program is designed to help people of all ages to develop a love of gardening. Those joining the program will have a chance to learn about gardening and to work with experienced members of the garden club.
Three individual events are planned during the coming year, with the cost kept to $5 per household per event.
Each session will be held at the Dade City Garden Club, 13630 Fifth St., in Dade City.
Registration is open for the first program in the series, which is called “About Seeds.” That’s scheduled for Jan. 14, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Participants will learn all about seeds, including “What is a seed?” “What are the parts of a seed?” “How to plant seeds,” and “How to gather and save seeds to continue growing your garden.”
Each event will have targeted activities for all age groups, according to the news release.
All ages are encouraged to take part, although each household reservation should have at least one adult, age 18 or older.
