Event description

Description


Each day explore a new theme, full of hands on learning activities. Including, seed saving, making plant dyes, worm studies, plant experiments, and more! For children grades K-5

Tuesday: Gardening Past and Present

The Tuesday Children's Workshop theme is Gardening Past and Present where we will dive into what gardening used to look like and how some ancient practices are still used today. Hands on activities will get kids thinking big picture about how plants can be used. Activities will include seed saving, making plant dyes, food preservation by pickling, and grinding our own flour.


Wednesday: Life in the Soil

Wednesday’s theme is Life in the Soil where we will focus on the life beneath our feet. Together, we will connect everything in our lives back to soil and discuss how important soil is. Children will get to work and play with live worms and soil. We will look at other bugs and insects that are important to our ecosystems too! Activities like bingo, bug life cycle arts, crafts and games, baking a compost cake, and reading some books about soil, bugs, and worms will help the children see that there's much more to it than just dirt!


Thursday: Blossoming Botanist

Thursday's theme is Blossoming Botanist. Children will be introduced to botany: the study of plants. Through science, observation, art, and play we will answer some questions about plants like: why they’re green? How do they grow? What do they need? And how they are different from each other? Activities will include some simple science experiments, plant dress up, a water cycle game, plant and seed dissection, and other plant focused fun!

PLEASE NOTE: Thursday is our only afternoon session of the week.
