FERNDALE – The vegetable gardening program at the Children’s Story Garden in Hovander Homestead Park has a new format for 2014. There will be five Saturday themed classes in April and May which will include Composting and Making Worm Bins, Miniature Gardens, Scarecrow Workshop, Bug Buddies and Pumpkin Starts. Most projects can be taken home.

There will also be hands-on vegetable gardening led by Master Gardeners. These sessions are on ‘Dig It’ Wednesdays from June to October so young gardeners experience the garden from seed to harvest.  All produce from the garden is donated to the food bank.

This year each gardening bed will feature a favorite children’s book. You will find Peter Rabbit among the lettuce, Jack climbing the bean stock, and more. In addition, Paul Bunyan’s Little Library will be a place to borrow and leave children’s books.

The fee is $50 per child and adult or a $60 family rate for an adult and more than one child. To register and for more information go to http://whatcom.wsu.edu/mastergardener/csg or call (360) 676-6736.
