IMPACT: StoryTime in the Garden provides information about the importance of early childhood literacy to over 5,000 children and families.

StoryTimes are held monthly at the beautiful Burden Museum and Gardens, which provides a perfect backdrop for introducing children to the farm to table concept. StoryTime in the Garden features storybook readings and imagination-themed activities for children ages 3 to 8 every 30 minutes beginning at 9 a.m. until noon, unless otherwise noted. All events are free and open to the public at the LSU Botanic Gardens at Burden at 4560 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge, LA 70809.
