Get outdoors, connect to nature, and learn about local ecology.
Garden Connections provides a themed, weekly subscription program geared toward ages 4-10. ICG currently offers an Autumn program, and will be adding other seasons one by one.
Inside every Connection you’ll find:
An introduction to this week’s theme — great for older children to read independently and younger children and caregivers to read together.
A guided exploration to engage in at Ithaca Children’s Garden — families will take the lead on their exploration. ICG educators will be available to answer any questions you might have or provide support.
A hands-on activity with all the info you’ll need to get started. These activities build off your exploration. Many can be done at the Garden -and all can be taken home.
Extension Activities — book lists and online resources to dig deeper on the weekly theme as well as additional activities ideas to try out at home.
