Explore the Backyard Veggie Garden at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Spend your morning outside as we enjoy story time and activities with Carlos the Cactus! This month we will be reading the book, “I Took a Walk” by Henry Cole. The hummingbirds are zooming, the bees are buzzing, and the flowers are blooming! After story time, come along for the adventure as we discover all there is to find on our stroll in the Garden. We’ll head back to the pavilion for fun activities and hands-on scientific fun, see you there!
