Learn how to make seed paper – homemade paper with seeds embedded in it. After it dries, this paper can be planted in a pot or in your garden.  Plant it, and watch flowers grow!

PLEASE NOTE, the paper pulp might get a little messy, and participants will almost certainly end up a bit wet. Please dress accordingly.


Call for Fairy Houses & Gnome Homes!
2013 fairy house
It's that time of year again!  It’s time to welcome the fairies back into our garden!

The snowbanks are receding, and the downed sticks, bark and dried seedpods are beginning to show. As you clean your yard, set some of these materials aside and use them to build fairy houses or gnome homes with your children. Or maybe you prefer to use shells and seaglass gathered at the beach?

2010 gnome homeWe’ll be accepting fairy houses for display starting April 21.To be included in judging, please bring in houses by Wed., April 29.

Houses should be constructed of all natural materials, with a base no larger than 14” x 14,” and a height no taller than 30 inches. Remember, faeries are allergic to plastic! Although glue is allowed, try string, thread or raffia to connect pieces, or make glue using flour and water. If you need building materials, stop by the Children’s Room. Members of the Seacoast Garden Club will offer a selection of pine cones, bark and sea shells for children to use in construction of Faerie Homes.

Faerie Houses will be on display until May 16. We are always amazed by the details children include. Be sure to stop by to see how creative they are!
