About this experience

Montessori Science Greenhouse Class – Bloom, Grow, Blossom!!!

Tuttle Orchards is offering a fun learning opportunity for homeschool students and their parents to explore how plants grow.  This experience lasts approximately 45 minutes and is designed for children 5 to 10, but children 2 to 13 years old are welcome to attend with a paid ticket.

Experience includes:

  • Observation and discussion about seeds, roots, stems, leaves, and flowers.

  • Student participation in a skit to learn about photosynthesis.

  • Tour of the greenhouse to learn about the growing tables and see how plants are transplanted.

  • Talk about how things grow in a hands-on environment.

  • Hands on planting activity with a plant to take home.

Dates & Times:

April 19 from 10:30am to 11:15am


$10.00 - For 1 Child (ages 2 to 13).  Includes the lesson, greenhouse tour, and a hands-on planting activity for the child.  Adults may help their child with the planting activity, but they will not get their own plant. Adults are free with a child; however, we can only accommodate 30-35 people in this class. Thus, the number of adults that can attend is limited.  

Kids 1 & under - Free (with a paid sibling) if they don’t plan to participate in the activity.  They will need to sit on an adult's lap or in a stroller as seating may be limited.  Some choose to purchase tickets for their 12-23 month old kids who want to participate in the planting activity.  Parents can choose based on their child’s needs.
