about Queens Botanical Garden:
The Children's Garden is a hands-on teaching garden cultivated by children, ages five to 14, who learn to plant, maintain, and harvest their own vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Children learn basic "good gardening" techniques and learn about food plants of many nations and cultures while exploring the history of the plants they grow.
Children plant in and tend to their own individual plots and learn the values of team work while planting, together, in the Bird Garden, Water Garden, Shade Garden, Herb Garden and the new International Garden. Gardening privileges are offered seasonally, and range from $25(autumn)-$100 (summer) for members, $30 (autumn)-$120(summer) for non-members.
Educational programs for children and families are offered seasonally. Check our calendar for details.
Member benefits include receipt of QBG's seasonal newsletter, invitations to events, and discounted adult education courses (excluding materials fee) and trips. Membership options begin at $30.
