The Dover Children’s Museum will be hosting an Earth Day event again this year on Monday, April 22nd from 10am – 3pm. Seacoast Eat Local will be there to teach about fun and tasty heirloom vegetables. You will get to take home a seeded pot from a selection of either a:
Green Zebra tomato,Â Cherokee Purple tomato, Brandywine tomato, Aunt Ruby’s German Green tomato, Lemon Cucumber, Yellow Crookneck Summer Squash or a New England Pie pumpkin (that yes, you can make a homemade pie from for Thanksgiving).
If you have success growing your vegetable plant, then you can save the seeds from it and grow it again next season!
Be An Earth Hero!
