Visitors check out the Linnaeus Vegetable Garden at a previous anniversary celebration.
Little Green Thumbs! Tuesday, May 31st, 10am-noon
A Wonderful Opportunity for Your Children
The Linnaeus Teaching Garden is proud to once again offer the Little Green Thumbs program for children ages 6-12. This year sessions will be held on the last Tuesday of May, June, July and August.
Would you like to have home-grown vegetables and herbs? Or maybe you have a flower bed that needs to be prepped and planted. Enroll your children in one or more of our Little Green Thumbs sessions, and they will become budding horticulturists eager to help.
The first class is Tuesday, May 31, from 10:00am - noon. Children will learn how to recognize good garden soil and how to improve the soil if it isn't the best. They'll have a planting project they get to bring home as well as a snack.
The cost is only $10 per child per class. You must pre-enroll so we can plan our materials. The size of the class is limited, so hurry, call Toni at 918-746-5125 to enroll.
Come Celebrate! It's our 10th Anniversary. Saturday June 4th, 9am - 2pm
On Saturday, June 4th from 9:00am to 2:00pm, the Linnaeus Teaching Garden will celebrate its tenth anniversary. The day will be filled with activities.
Starting at 9:00am, the first 400 visitors to the Garden will receive a free, one-gallon Nantucket Blue hydrangea, a twenty dollar value.
This repeat blooming hydrangea is particularly suited to urban gardens since it only grows 2 ½ to 3 ½ feet tall and wide. It will produce blooms throughout the season.
At 10:30am, Nelson Darden, sales manager with industry giants Proven Winners and EuroAmerican, will be speaking on “New Varieties and Must Have’s from Proven Winners & EuroAmerican”.
There is no cost to attend this lecture, but come early to ensure getting a seat. It will be held in the Tulsa Garden Center auditorium
Following the lecture, Linnaeus Garden volunteers will be selling varieties of new annuals, some of which will be made available for the first time in Oklahoma. Light refreshments and lots of free gardening advice and literature will be available through the day.
Call 918-746-5125 for additional information.
