Coral Gables Museum City Trekkers. Kids Planting.Caroline Parker, Director of Programs for the Coral Gables Museum, brought 21 students to Montgomery Botanical Center to learn about botanic gardens through a palm planting workshop.  

The children enthusiastically enjoyed planting an important group of Sabal Palms in the Lowland Palmetum. Coral Gables Museum City Trekkers Visit Montgomery Botanical Center July 2010

Caroline’s idea to dedicate one week to learning the importance of botanic gardens demonstrates excellent planning in the CGM summer camp program. Landscape design, sustainability, horticulture, conservation, and botany are all important topics that are part of growing a plant collection.

“The children did an excellent job planting and helped us immensely,” said Laurie Danielson. “They made a great contribution to our garden.”
