Oak Park Garden Center Makes Gardening Fun for Kids

Kids will get dirty this summer, and Oak Park Garden Center has a way to make it even more fun. Diane Giddens offers classes to show boys and girls how to make miniature gardens with appropriately small plants, and then decorate them with personal touches.  She notes, “Boys often choose to use dinosaurs, Army men, even Matchbox cars, and girls like fairies, gnomes, and little houses. Each kid’s garden starts out the same, the completed pieces are real individual projects!” Kids can work on their gardens while mom and dad shop for plants and decor for their home water gardens or landscapes. The Center also offers Wee Wednesday sessions for adults to create their own miniature gardens. Giddens warns, “Miniature gardening causes euphoria and you may become addicted.” Classes cost $10 and begin in June.
