“Pressed Flowers” Childrens Program at Dover Cassily Community Garden

The next Dover Cassily Community Garden “Growing Children” children’s garden program,  “Pressed Leaves and Flowers”, will take place  on Saturday, August 13, 2011. Come make a plant press and collect flowers and leaves to preserve as well as tend to the garden.

This is the seventh in the summer long Growing Children Activity Series focusing on growing cycles, affinity for planting, caring for, harvesting and eating locally grown organic produce, community building, social interaction, exploration of nature, getting dirty and just plain having fun!

Children of all ages and families are welcome to attend free of charge. All programs will begin at 10am at the DCCG shed and run from about an hour to an hour and a half and will be held rain or shine, but not thunder and lightning. Much more information is available at dovergarden.org or email Traci, Youth Outreach Coordinator, at the.mogget@yahoo.com.
