Explore the Backyard Veggie Garden at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. Come spend your morning in the garden as we enjoy story time and activities with Carlos the Cactus! This month we will be reading the book, "Who Will Plant a Tree?" by Jerry Pallotta. Explore with us as we discover all the different types of trees in the garden and who is behind all the mysterious planting. See you there!
