Learning Garden Fun

Thursdays, June - September 2023

10:30 am and 2:30 pm 

The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s Learning Garden activities will begin when the museum’s summer hours start, the week of June 20, 2023. 

  • Learning Garden activities will be on Thursday mornings and afternoons, and will include a guided activity around different themes. There will also be garden themed “tinkering” activities each week. Weekly themes could include learning about pollinators, planting seeds, making pots, seed balls or flower art, garden harvesting, and more.

  • The museum’s Learning Garden is located next to the Dover Adventure Public Playground in Henry Law Park, and is available for visitors to explore when the museum is open (depending on the weather). 

  • Food from the garden will be used for museum programs, offered to garden visitors to take home, or donated to a pantry if the harvest allows. 

  • This summer the Learning Garden will have a “three sisters” garden bed that includes beans, corn, and squash. A “three sisters” garden includes three main crops of various Indigenous peoples of North America: squash, maize, and climbing beans. When planted together, the “three sisters” work together to help one another thrive and survive. 

Garden activities are included with museum admission, and as always, free for Members! To participate in a Learning Garden activity, simply reserve a Thursday morning (9am-Noon) or afternoon (1-4pm) play session. Reserve online here >>

The Learning Garden is sponsored by Whole Foods.
