Children’s Garden in the Village

This spring Fermilab families, hosted by Playgroup, came together to plant the Children’s garden in the Village. Families brought tomatoes, sunflowers, peppers, watermelon, pumpkins and marigolds to plant. Children also planted corn, peas, beans and sunflower seeds. This was our second year in the garden. Children’s and parents alike were happy to see lettuce, strawberries and lavender that had returned from last year. The kids had a great time planting and playing in the dirt and then washed off in the sprinkler. As the garden has grown, it has been fun to see the interesting places the children planted the corn and peas!

The Children’s Garden is located at the southeast corner of the User’s Center in the Village.
