Children's Seed Festival

“From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow”

Make a Planeteer out of your child by taking them to the Children's Seed Festival this Earth Day on Saturday, April 22. From 10am-2pm, kids will learn about seed structure and germination, how to differentiate the seeds of various plants, how to create ideal conditions for seeds to germinate and how to care for plants after germination through a variety of games like a mystery seed lab, seed trivia game and seed ball creation.

There will also be other activities like a story time and face painting as well as the multitude of other things you can do at the Botanical Gardens like tour the gardens and greenhouses, play on the playground, watch the miniature train travel through the little towns, grab a bite to eat or pop over to the aquarium. All kids will receive a Seed Festival bag to pack all their goodies from the day and one lucky kid will win a one-year membership to the BioPark for their whole family! Entry to the Botanical Gardens for N.M. residents is free for children under three, $4-$6 for kids 3-12, $5-$8 for seniors and $9-$15 for adults (13-64). (Megan Reneau)

Kids learn about seed structure and germination, how to differentiate among the various seeds, how to create the conditions for seeds to germinate and how to care for plants after germination.

The Children's Seed Festival helps children discover the amazing role seeds play in the plant life of our beautiful planet, Earth. Each child will receive a special Seed Festival bag in which to carry home an activity booklet, their seed ball and seed art, plus a plant or two started and nurtured by the Botanic Garden staff for the festival. The winner of a "how many seeds are in this jar" guessing game will win a one-year membership to the BioPark for his/her family! It's what to do with your kids on Earth Day!
