Help the staff at Mercer Botanic Gardens plant a new strawberry patch this spring! Following the strawberry planting, visit our volunteer face painter for a cheerful design and check out strawberry-themed books from the Little Blue Library. Strawberry lemonade will be provided to participants. To reserve a strawberry plant for planting, call 713-274-4160. Planting is scheduled in two one-hour time blocks. When calling to reserve a plant for your child, indicate your time preference: 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. Limit one strawberry plant per child.
