Hello Parents!

We're really excited to launch our fall series of Young Sprouts Kids Club workshops with three free workshops to teach kids about gardening, plants and nature.

Research shows that kids who garden are healthier and happier, they tend to eat a more diverse diet, they get exercise, and they develop an appreciation for living things.

Kids who grow up into gardening adults will also help make the world a more beautiful and healthy place for all of us to live.

We'd love to see your kids, neices, nephews, and grandchildren at Young Sprouts. And if you don't have kids, see if you can borrow some from the neighbourhood - adults have fun at our Kids Club too! And even better, see if their best friends want to come along!

During the hour that your kids are in their workshop you can hang out with them or browse the nursery!

Happy Gardening,

Gary and the Phoenicians

PS. If you or your kids love carnivorous plants, we still have a great selection of pitcher plants, octopus plant (Drosera) and Venus flytraps in stock now!

YOUNG SPROUTS KIDS CLUB - Raise a gardener. Our new kids club is designed to introduce kids to the fascinating world of plants and gardening through fun discussions and demonstrations, activities with plants, and arts and crafts. And all the workshops are FREE! The Young Sprouts Kids Club is designed for children ages 7-12 but keen younger children can attend with a parent or guardian. Register individually by following the links below.




Fall is a time of bountiful harvests when farmers and gardeners alike are bringing in their crops after the spring and summer growing season. Our Young Sprouts will explore this time of year, talk about where all these harvests came from, and how they are so important for our lives. Then they'll get to make their own veggie people!

YOUNG SPROUTS KIDS CLUB | Why do leaves change colour and other questions about fall!

Fall is a fun time of year when leaves turn colour and fall. But why? We'll explore the changes we see in the garden and what that means for the plants, animals, birds, and insects that make the garden their home. Then we'll make a fun craft with colourful leaves to take home! Bring some pretty leaves with you or we'll provide some.

Instructore: Kate | Sun October 18th, 11am-12pm | FREE*



Inside the brown and white bulbs, corms and rhizomes available in fall are little plants with beautiful flowers ready to pop out in spring and give us a beautiful display. Why do some plants form these little structures and others not? Learn about the magic of bulbs then plant up your own pot of bulbs to take home for spring!
