Boulder club will bring kids into the garden

July 1, 2018 by  

Autumn is just around the corner, and Boulder kids have been invited to make the most from the harvest season by joining in an activity that will help them to build their horticultural skills.

The Children’s Peace Garden After School Club will be starting up its fall session, and kids from ages 4 to 11 are welcome to get involved. The group will work at a variety of gardening activities, including caring for the tools, putting the plants to bed for the winter, collecting and saving seeds and many others.

Along with getting their hands dirty in the garden, the children will be taught about nutrition and how to transform the harvest into food they can enjoy eating. They will also build a spirit of community and explore how they can take charge of their food supply and know where the items on their plate come from.

The club will have several meetings throughout the fall, and during the first, the members will explore the garden and even take home a piece of produce to enjoy with their family. T-shirts, hats, jackets and other promotional products for this sort of occasion can be provided by an area printer.

These after school garden club sessions will begin on September 11 and run until October 2. The location for this activity will be 1630 Hawthorn Avenue.
