about little sprouts

Little Sprouts is a youth garden program hosted at City Sprouts. Each week our educator presents a new garden-related topic. From planting seeds to an end-of-season harvest party, there is something for everyone! Each lesson includes hands-on activities related to gardening and exploring the natural world. 


Little Sprouts is geared for youth, ages 3 to 7 years old. All sessions are family-friendly and free, but donations are welcomed and encouraged to keep the program going and help pay for supplies. Parents/guardians are always welcome to join their kids in exploring the garden. For children under 5 years old, we do require a parent to be in attendance. 

All classes are held at City Sprouts North Garden (4002 Seward Street).

Check out the awesome classes we have planned for 2023:
