|Plants Plants Plants!|
Thursday, April 8th 1:30pm-2:30pm
Students will learn about some of the tasty fruits, vegetables, and spices we eat–what do they look like as they grow? We’ll find out! We’ll also demonstrate some fun and simple ways to garden indoors and in containers.
Visit to the Freetown Farm
FRIDAY, April 16th 2pm
Please RSVP by April 9th
We will visit Freetown Farm, the last remaining farm in Columbia, MD, where lots of learning about nature take place! This organic farm is on historic land that was once home to a large community of free African-Americans that started in the mid-1800s. This area is also considered to be part of the Underground Railroad! We will be led through the organic farm by its director and have hands-on experience with the spring crops.

Be creative and have fun!
