Kid’s Gathering: Seeds!

April 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Get outside and learn about seeds at Glen Foerd!

Join us for a fun day outside, complete with story time and a making activity! We’ll learn about seeds, make seed bombs (this could get messy!), and check out some of the cool things growing on the on the grounds of Glen Foerd.

Appropriate for 3-6 year olds but older and younger kids are welcome! Let’s get outside and explore. This is a free activity, but registration is required.


Glen Foerd stewards an eclectic riverfront estate for the enjoyment and educational benefit of the community. Drawing from the estate’s architecture, art, material culture, and history—as well as its gardens and waterways—Glen Foerd provides inclusive experiences that spark curiosity and support Philadelphia’s natural and cultural ecosystems.

We work with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation to steward 18 acres of riverfront land and the buildings upon it, including the last gilded age mansion along the Delaware River that is open to the public. Glen Foerd is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our grounds also qualify as a historic arboretum, and are open to the public every day from 8:00AM to dusk.
