Homeschool Day: Gardening

Join the Polk Home and the Maury County Master Gardeners for a morning of specially designed homeschool activities focused on gardening throughout history. The Polk Home gardens have long been considered a jewel of downtown Columbia, but when the Polk family lived here, the property functioned as a farm. Guests can explore the kitchen garden, learn about Victorian-era garden games, plant a special treat for Tennessee pollinators, create their own nature-inspired art, and enjoy a springtime treat in the kitchen.

Homeschool History Day guests enjoy a discounted admission rate that includes hands-on activities throughout the site. Homeschool History Days are “come and go” events, with activity stations open from 9am-1pm. The event will proceed rain or shine. This is the first event of the Polk Home’s quarterly Homeschool History Day series. Future events will focus on the Mexican-American War, Archaeology (back by popular demand), and the fall harvest season. 

Please purchase your tickets through Eventbrite below! A limited number of tickets will be available to purchase on-site the day of the event.
