Welcome to Seed Saturday, where kids – and, of course, adults – will be able to play in the dirt and take home a nice little four-inch potted plant.

We’re doing it all at Rillito Nursery and Garden Center on Saturday, Aug. 16. It all starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. it’s an all-day thing where kids who loving playing in the dirt will feel like they are in heaven.

It’s Rillito’s way of introducing the next generation to the joy of gardening. Our staff will help them enjoy the day and assist in helping pick out the seeds they want to plant.

We will supply the four-inch pot, soil and seeds. You provide the fun and enthusiasm.

The motto of the event: “If they grow it, they will eat it!”

And it’s all free, so come in and have fun at Rillito Nursery for Seed Saturday.
