Ages: 7 – 12
Would your kids enjoy digging in the garden and trying to grow their own healthy snacks or learning to make fun, edible creations of their own?
Sophia Kontos, a former camper and counselor at the NDC, is teaching this series of three classes on Saturday mornings in September on the basics of gardening, knowing where food comes from, and healthy eating. Sophia is doing this as part of earning her Girl Scout Gold Award.
Kids will learn, explore, and be enticed with healthier food options by trying new vegetables such as jicama, romanesco and kohlrabi. Kids will plant seeds of easy-to-grow vegetables and herbs, watch them grow and learn how to care for the plants. Then they will get to take them home to plant in their yards in pots or in the ground.
Dates: September 9, 16, & 23
Times: 10 – 11:30 am
Cost: $10 (for the entire 3 class series; fee goes directly to the Nature Discovery Center)
Bring: Kids should wear clothes that they can get dirty in. Mosquito spray and sunscreen are recommended.
