Environmental Interpretive Center hosts 'kinder gardeners'
In the "sprouts" program, children ages 7 to 9 will sow and tend a garden plot. Other activities include gardening games, crafts, science experiments, composting and a visit to the campus honeybee hives.
In the "kinder-gardening" program, children ages 4 to 6 and their parents will share a common garden plot with other families and plant vegetables and flowers. A dress-up party will be held at harvest time, and children can take home the garden grown goodies.
Kinder-gardeners will meet from 6:15 p.m. to 7 p.m. and sprouts will meet from 7:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. on the following Tuesdays: May 27, June 3, June 10, June 17, July 8, July 22, August 12 and August 26.
The fee for either program is $30 per child. To register, or for more
