Homeschool Day explores gardening roots

Budding horticulturists can dig their green thumbs into the subject of gardens as they explore the relationship between humans and plants at Homeschool Day-Growing with Gardens, Thursday, Nov. 9, at the Environmental Education Center (EEC) at Veteran’s Oasis Park, 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road.

Homeschool Day will be held from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and is part of the EEC’s Environmental Explorations program, which provides field trip experiences for students and other groups.
“Since people have been on Earth, there has been a relationship between humans and plants,” said Ariane Francis, a Recreation Coordinator at the EEC. “This program will embrace the past, present and future of gardens through hands-on activities and experiments.”

The program is designed for children and youth ages 5 to 17 and offers grade-specific activities that allow students to experience the adventure of learning through inquiry-based activities and investigations.

The cost is $6 for homeschooled children living in Chandler and $9 for non-residents. Accompanying parents, chaperones and spectators attend for free.

To request a reservation for your school, group or homeschooled child, contact Ariane Francis at or by phone at 480-782-2886.
