Spring SEED Registration Still Open for Elementary!


Spring break seed camp is a special offering run during Charlottesville and Albemarle County’s spring break each year. Children spend their time sowing seeds in the garden, harvesting greenhouse and early-producing crops, and exploring Mountaintop’s beautiful campus as it buds and blossoms for another growing year. Spring is a great time to be here working in the garden & greenhouse and we love to share this peak time for planting with friends from all over the area at seed.

There are still a few spaces remaining in Spring Break SEED Camp, which runs from April 6-10, for elementary-aged children (grades 1 through 5). To register or find out more, click here!
