Activities (choose one)

Flowers & Friends

Children express creativity and connect to nature by planting an annual flower in a pot they painted themselves! Available year-round.

Edible Science: Lettuce Get Down to Earth!

 

Lettuce get down to earth by learning the benefits of composting! Budding Sprouts will get their hands dirty, tour our composting systems, and see a real-life worm bin! Participants will then return to the party room and demonstrate their knowledge of soil science to make their own edible “dirt” pudding dessert cup- complete with gummy worms! Their education doesn’t stop at the Garden -participants leave with their own bag of compost to take home. Available all year round.

Presto Pizza Garden!

The little ones learn about plants and veggies that make pizza so tasty, and make their own mini pizza, personalizing it with the fresh herbs they just learned about. Available year-round.

Garden Par-Tea

Cheers! In this botanical tea party, children make their own tea blends with herbs and flowers brewed in fine china! Partygoers will learn the traditional uses of these ingredients and take a walk in the Garden to see them growing in nature. Available year-round. Recommended for ages 8+.

*Grown-ups can have fun at QBG too! Our party packages can be tailored for an adult audience.

Playful Pumpkins

Perfect for fall birthdays! After children learn about squashes, they get to pick their very own pumpkin from QBG’s Pumpkin Patch (in October) to bring inside and paint playful faces. Available in the fall.

Winter Wonderland

Perfect for winter birthdays! Little ones learn how to make snow out of eco-friendly ingredients. They go out in the Garden on a hunt for pine cones and other treasures (weather permitting) to add to their own magical winter terrarium! As an alternative, the group takes a tour of the Greenhouse to learn the difference between deciduous, evergreen, and tropical plants. Available in the winter.
