**We have unfortunately cancelled this event due to cold weather.**
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, “Shelter” by Celine Claire. Have you ever wondered where all the animals go during the winter? Join us as we discover how plants help our furry friends stay warm and safe during the cold days and nights. This will be your last month to have fun in the Garden since winter is quickly approaching and our Garden is going to sleep. Hope to see you there!
