COMO Children’s Garden

Wanda Sullivan and Annette Born, Co-Chairs

The time has arrived to tuck in the beds in the COMO Children’s Garden for the long winter ahead. In October, we invite you to learn and help over three consecutive weekends to bed the garden down for the winter and prepare it for next year. Enjoy the camaraderie of the end of the season, learn great tips, and take home goodies from the garden! Below are the times and tasks.


“Saving” the Dahlias

  • Part 1 – Sunday, October 10 at 11:00 am. We will learn how to “lift” the dahlias and prep them for winter storage.
  • Part 2 – Sunday, October 17 at 11:00 am. We will divide the dahlias to create dozens of more plants for next year. You will learn how to store the dahlias to avoid rot, and you get to take home a dahlia tuber!

“Bedding” the Garden

  • Part 1 – Saturday, October 16 at 10:00 am. Cutting down and cleaning out the raised beds and other areas of the garden.
  • Part 2 – Saturday, October 23 at 10:00 am. Learn how to amend the soil, what to add and when, and what the different amendments do for your garden soil. Go home with a garden amendment goodie bag!

Bring gloves & clippers
