We're two years into our partnership with the Chicopee Public Library and going strong! We recently wrapped up our fall programming, including a teen pumpkin carving contest, leafy greens-themed celebration, and root exploration. These events take place after school and are a great way for our farm to school team to engage with students and parents outside of the classroom.
At our recent "Root Exploration" event, children and their families got to participate in a variety of fun activities including a smoothie taste test, root matching game, posey poetry, seed observation station, and pin the nose on the snowman. We also made root view planter boxes and planted radish seeds so that participants can watch them grow "underground."
Our next event will take place on Monday, January 28th from 3:30 - 4:30 pm in the Kid's Room. We hope you'll join us for some veggie "engineering"! To download the rest of the 2018-2019 "Fun with Food" Calendar, click the button below!
