Garden Tours

Kid Smilers

Plan a field trip for your school, daycare or activity group for fun, hands-on learning in the garden!

Children and youth, preschool through high school, engage all of their senses while gaining valuable skills, knowledge and experiences at Seattle Tilth's children's gardens. We practice hands-on science-based learning. We can schedule tours Wednesday through Fridays. Please note, we will not be offering Garden Tours between November 9, 2015 - March 7, 2016.

Pre-K children taste herbs and flowers, touch the soft and the prickly, and forage in the soil to discover compost critters and find the unexpected delights of gardening.

Elementary school groups visit two or three learning stations. Children learn and practice important garden activities such as making compost, planting, tending and harvesting crops, collecting seeds and other seasonal activities. Visit once or plan a series of visits to build upon gardening and environmental concepts throughout the year.
