Updates on Summer Programs from the Junior Gardener's Club

We hope you have been enjoying the summer as much as we have! Tuesday programs continue for the Junior Gardener's Club - including tomorrow's Zumba program at 10 a.m. (Tuesday August 9th) and the last Tuesday program for the summer, Teddy Bear Picnic on August 16th.

Silverton Fitness instructor Lydia will be in the Children's Garden at 10 a.m. tomorrow to teach club members (and their parents!) how to move and dance to the zumba beat. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to wiggle and dance in the gorgeous summer air!

On Tuesday August 16th, the Junior Gardener's Club will celebrate the summer season with a Teddy Bear Picnic! Children of all ages are invited to bring their best Teddy Bear friend and enjoy a fun morning of teddy snacks and a wonderful puppet show by Penny Puppet Productions! This program will happen in the Children's Garden and may last about 80 minutes.

Note: if your teddy bear friend can't make it to this party, the Gift Shop will have some great teddy bears on sale - with special pricing for Junior Gardener's Club participants!

An update about Saturday programs:

Due to unexpected circumstances, the August 13th Junk Jam program is being postponed until this fall. A new date will be posted on this blog and sent to Junior Gardener's Club members as soon as it has been finalized. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Join us on Saturday September 10th at 10 a.m. for a cooking adventure! The Merry Kitchen will be at The Oregon Garden to teach us how to make fresh salsa and lettuce wraps with produce straight out of the Silverton Market Garden! Tasting these delicious creations will of course be necessary and kids can show off their culinary skills! Don't miss out
