Are you and your family interested in learning more about gardening?

Join California State Parks at the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area Community Garden for a fun-filled, hands-on exploration of an urban community garden.

Families will receive a deep dive into how science is used in all parts of gardening, from soil health to food webs, observations, and scientific tools. Pick up a magnifying glass and be ready to get your hands dirty as we dig into all of the amazing ways that we can find science in our local garden.

All families will leave with a brand-new seedling to continue the learning at home!
