Designing Youth Garden Spaces

Sat., Oct. 6, 10-11 a.m.
phone 314-588-9600
education@gatewaygreening.org

Gardens are often not designed for small feet, curious hands, and the abundant energy of kids and teens. With the right planning, these spaces can become joy-filled, low maintenance locations for exploration and learning. Join EarthDance farmer and educator Kaitie Adams for this hands-on workshop focusing on garden/outdoor space layout, choosing the right plants for your youth, tips on getting the most out of small spaces, and activities that make garden work seem like recess. Instructor: Kaitie Adams, EarthDance Organic Farm School Register at http://www.gatewaygreening.org/educators/ Free, but registration required.

Flora Borealis

Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 20
,

Summers in St. Louis are no picnic, what with the brutal heat and oppressive humidity. At night conditions improve a bit, and that's the time to get outside and experience the city. The Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard; www.mobot.org) takes full advantage of the nocturnal respite with Flora Borealis, a nighttime-only special exhibition. Thanks to the artistic and technical brilliance of AVI Systems Inc., a section of the garden is temporarily transformed into a new experience with active lights, moving images and sounds that alter and enhance the familiar landscape. Tickets for Flora Borealis are $10 to $25 and are sold for specific time slots each night (Thursday through Tuesday through August 26). While you're waiting for your scheduled time you can take advantage of MoBOT’s new tented biergarten, which features live entertainment on select nights. $10-$25
