Roses are red, violets are blue, come play at the Discovery Garden and learn a thing or two! Join the Community Cultivators and the Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department this year for Earthworms!

“Gardeners” will explore natural sources of food through this organic, hands-on learning experience by tending to the seasonal duties of the Discovery Garden in LaVista Park.  This gardening experience will provide participants with an alternative and creative outdoor activity that encourages the holistic growth of our community. Participants should “dress for mess” as every aspect of the garden, including digging in the dirt, will be covered.

Earthworms is open to boys & girls ages 6-14 and will be meeting from 9:30 - 11 am on every other Thursday throughout the summer. Click here for the registration form. If interested in volunteering for this event, please contact the Community Cultivators at
