Green Babies Class

09:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Bring your babies.  Have you ever wondered what you can do to encourage your child to go green?  We'll look at some easy ways for you to help expose your child to caring for the environment.  We'll also explore a wide variety of green parenting products and cut through some of the hype.  Empower yourself to make the best choices for you and your little environmentalists.  Children are welcome and will play environmental games with a KGMB educator outside while the adults participate in the indoor program.  Expecting mothers, dads, and grandparnets are all welcome to attend.

Register at beginning August 5th.  Resident fee $10, Non-resident fee $20.



Third Thursday Volunteer Night

05:30 PM - 07:30 PM



Seed/Perennial Exchange

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Rather than throwing away perennials when thinning and separating them, bring them here to give away to others. It’s a great way to improve the Garden District in someone else’s yard, and you also might find something you want for your yard. If you collect seeds from plants in your yard, the Spring Perennial and Seed Exchange is a great place to trade or give them away. Nothing at the event is sold! Even if you’re just starting out and don’t have anything to offer, you’re invited to come down anyway. The Garden District’s gardeners are willing to give away plants to make the district beautiful, and most aren’t shy about offering free advice, either.
