The class is free for AVBG members.  All fees collected will support the Alta Vista Children’s Garden.

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is in our ninth year of getting kids outdoors to discover their environment, enjoy nature, dig into gardening, learn about nutrition, and to share art and music.  Come join us!

At our September 9 class, we will be making fruit kebabs and baking biscuits with Farmer Jones and then learn about the nutrition in the food we eat. We emphasize hands-on discovery and fun for all!

Your registration for the class includes your visit to the Children’s Garden: the Ricardo Breceda “Serpent,” the Enchanted Garden Tube Tunnels, our fantastic Fall Fun Festival scarecrows, the interactive Children’s Music Garden, the Turtle and Dino Dig, and the Incredible Edibles Garden and your self-guided tour of the 14-acre Gardens.

When you join and buy a family membership in Alta Vista Botanical Gardens, the monthly Kids in the Garden class and entry to the Gardens are FREE for a year.  Membership forms are available on the website.  Donations and sponsorships are gratefully accepted.

School field trips, Scout badge sessions, and club tours are available for a reasonable fee. Farmer Jones is a retired elementary teacher with 28 years’ experience in the classroom.  She is a Master Composter who has been working in school gardens and children’s gardens for 44 years.

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is located at 1270 Vale Terrace Drive in Vista, at the top of the hill inside Brengle Terrace Park.  (760) 822-6824 Farmer Jones
