The Scoop on Poop (Sun. 30 Apr, 2017 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

HV Photo

For ages 3 to 5, plus caregivers
Get the scoop on poop in this fun gardening class just for preschoolers. First we’ll head out onto the farm to collect the main ingredients we need to plant our garden… such as poop! There are so many kinds here on the farm, all so important for growing everything we eat, from fruits and veggies to milk and ice cream. Children will learn the connections between compost and soil, sample veggies growing in our garden, then craft a special planting project to bring home for their very own garden. If your child is rather fascinated with poop... they might be a budding scientist, or maybe a farmer... and this is the class for you.
