Kids Grow!! IFL Kids Gardening Club
Kids Grow! is a Kids Gardening Club for our children aged 6-11. Younger siblings can join in also, but adults must accompany all children to the gardens and remain while the kids tend the gardens and their plants.
The main goal of this program will be to teach children about nature, how to follow instructions, how to grow their own food, how to prepare and eat their own produce, and the responsibilities that go with most things in life. It also should be a good time for kids in the community to make friends and socialize with other kids with the same interests.
We would also like to start a seed library here at the library and what a better way to do that than have a gardening club? We can collect and share seeds with other members of the community once we get it going.
This garden will be totally organic. We will use no pesticides or fertilizer. We will learn how to care for our plants, how to harvest produce, and even how to prepare easy meals with what we grow.
**This program is free and open to the public, but PLEASE REGISTER on our website so that Val (The Children’s Librarian) can contact you to cancel or move the program to the library in case of inclement weather!
Come on out kids and experience the fun of planning and raising your own vegetables in a garden!
