Calling All Kids: Read and Seed on the Wilmington College Campus

Now that the kids are all back in school and Fall is decidedly here, we're planning a monthly educational series for kids about gardening and food. Mariah and Jen, our respective Youth Outreach and Community Gardens Coordinators, will be hosting the events, titled "Read and Seed," and kids ages 2-12 will have the chance to work with hands-on gardening demonstrations.

The first "Read and Seed" will be on Saturday, October 10 at 2:00 p.m, and check-in will start at 1:30 at the Center for Service & Civic Engagement on campus. Kids will be split into three categories: Lil' Sprouts - ages 2-4; Seedlings - ages 5-7, and Blossoms - ages 8-12.

If you or your kids would like to participate or would like more information, call Mariah at (937) 382-6661 ext. 488, or email her at mariah_fulton@wilmington.edu
