FREE CHILDREN’S PROGRAM AT BOYD LIBRARY

by cparrish

In partnership with Sandhills Farm to Table, “It Starts With a Seed — An Eating and Growing Event” is the theme of the Saturday Children’s Program at the Boyd Library on the campus of Sandhills Community College. This free drop-in event will be on Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m.-Noon.

Parents, grandparents, and guardians are invited to bring their little ones and enjoy books about food and farms, and fruit and vegetable riddles. A Farm to Table educator will share information on growing foods and will bring samples of current locally available food. We will have two planting activities. One will show the children how to grow Microgreen Hair and the other will teach how to make a Germination Necklace with planting ideas to take home.

A wide variety of books will be on display for check-out about foods, fruits, vegetables, and farming. There will be a drawing for six new books.

To reserve a spot, RSVP with child’s name and age to konoldm@sandhills.edu.
