LEAF Garden Science: Dissecting Fruits

LEAF Garden Science: Dissecting Fruits

Join us for another fun garden science workshop for kids! The Centerville Library is teaming up with LEAF (Local Ecology and Agriculture Fremont) to create a gardening space for young kids, teens, and adults to participate in growing a sustainable garden and learning about the science of gardening. 

What is a fruit? Is a tomato a vegetable? Why are the seeds of fruits on the inside? Although the category of “fruit” might seem simple, it is filled with surprising exceptions and oddities. Come learn about some of these fruits as we take them apart to see what makes them tick. Kids will also draw pictures and diagrams showing the inner workings of their fruit. We’ll add some pictures to the display case for viewing so we can share our knowledge with other library visitors.

For kids ages 5+. Space is limited, tickets will be handed out 15 minutes before the program starts. 

For questions, call 510-795-2629.
