Where else could you find a zip line, archery, geocaching, worm hunting and seed planting in the same place for FREE? Make a smoothie with a bike blender, grind corn, visit a Plant Zoo and make your own hummingbird feeder at one of Springfield’s most popular children’s events, Young Sprouts in the Garden!
