2022 Magnuson Children's Garden events

The Children's Garden welcomes people of all ages and abilities!  All of our FREE classes and stewardship events are led by Children's Garden Committee members, King County Master Gardeners, or other experienced gardeners, and all are suitable for adults and/or families.  Our free classes also count as Continuing Education (CE) for all Master Gardeners who attend!

OUR COVID-SAFE PROTOCOLS:

  • At all our classes and stewardship events, we follow guidance from the CDC, WA State and the WSU/Master Gardener Program.  As of now, this includes the following guidelines:
    • We request that all adult attendees be vaccinated, and we require that all attendees over age 2 wear a mask whenever they are within 6ft of another attendee.
    • There is a maximum of 15 attendees for each class and stewardship event, which allows social distancing in the garden. We require that all attendees register in advance via this SignUp Genius webpage.
  • At our stewardship events, we also supply all sanitizing supplies and tools, but ask that volunteers bring their own garden gloves if they have them. If not, we will supply a freshly-laundered pair to use while you are in the Children’s Garden.

 

  • We ask that stewardship event attendees bring their own water bottles, and we will happily supply "fill-ups" as well as granola bars to all volunteers.

 

 

Here are some tips on using this webpage:

  1. There are 3 signup sections for each date: one is for CG Committee members and other event Co-Leaders, one is for class attendees, and one is for stewardship event volunteers.
  2. We welcome the public to sign up as a class attendee or as a stewardship event volunteer, or to sign up for both!
  3. Find the events that you'd like to attend, click on the yellow sign-up-box for each, then scroll down to click on the large "Submit and Sign Up" button and compete your registration.
  4. If you would like to attend both the class and the stewardship event, you will need to click on the yellow sign-up-box for both before you click on the "Submit and Sign Up" button.
  5. If any family members will be attending with you, you can change the number shown in the quantity column to refect the total number of attendees in your group after your click on the "Submit and Sign Up" button.

To help The Children's Garden Committee plan the activites for each event, please let us know whether or not you are a King Co. Master Gardener intern or veteran when you sign up.

Thanks a million! We look forward to seeing you in the garden!
