It's never to early to get a green thumb at Queens Botanical Garden. On August 12, kids can take a break from smelling the roses to try their hands at making wildflower seed balls (1-2pm), which are small spheres of clay, earth and native flower seeds that they can take back to their neighborhoods and plant. Afterwards the families can learn all about how the garden creates compost out of food-scraps and waste during the one-hour Farm and Welcome Compost Tour (11am-12pm). The afternoon also includes an activity table with crafts. Ages 4 and up.
