A workshop for children entering grades 2-4 and their parents

In this workshop, led by teacher/artist/gardener Holly Hall, parents are invited to partner with their child to learn how texture, geometry, movement, sound, and fragrance as well as the color and shape of flowers play into designing a garden. Following a short slide show exploring garden features such as paths, walls, water, vistas and lawns, we will tour Hollister House Garden together, discovering its hidden treasures and special magic weather permitting. Returning to the barn Holly will lead us in designing and creating our own special garden and in making a miniature model of it to take home.
