Youth Education and Outreach at Mass Hort includes:Weezie's Garden Big Red Chair

The Plantmobile : a traveling plant science workshop that provides hands-on experiential, education programs for students in grades Pre-K through 8.

The Garden Classroom : ecological and environmental curriculum-based field trips to the Gardens at Elm Bank for students in grades Pre-K through 8.

Weezie's Garden : This whimsical garden is designed as a natural playground which consists of a series of small spiraling gardens, each with its own theme and way of engaging the senses.

Caterpillar Club: intended for kids from pre-kindergarten through second grade, sessions of the Caterpillar Club are held in the stone circle at Weezie's Garden and include material on flowers, insects, trees and butterflies, which will be explored through reading, demonstrations and crafts.

Weezie's Garden Story Hour: meeting in the stone circle of Weezie's Garden at Elm Bank, our story hour allows children of all ages to join Mass Hort storytellers for seasonal stories, rhyme, and song, always followed by a Weezie's Walkabout to explore the garden and garden life.
