Spring Virtual Seminars

Wee Wednesdays!

At Sargent’s, we are committed to helping kids get out and enjoy the great outdoors through gardening. Wee Wednesdays are designed for preschool and kindergarten aged children to do just that!

All classes include hands-on activities, a story and a tasty treat. Classes start at 9:30am and 10:30am the third Wednesday of the month. A $9 class fee covers supplies and snacks. Please plan to stay with your child(ren).

To enroll in these fun-filled classes, please call 507-289-0022 or click below!
