100 S Wilcox Street
Douglas County Conservation District is launching its new children’s education program, I’m Diggin’ My Doug: Planting Home Gardens in Douglas County. Glenn Ballantyne, the creator of the program will facilitate a FREE interactive workshop for 4th and 5th graders (ages 8-11) on Saturday, April 22nd at The Douglas County Public Library in Castlerock (100 S. Wilcox Street) from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.
Students will learn how to plant a seed and care for their plant from seedling to harvest. Their experience will include singing, yoga poses that relate to the environment, tasting, smelling and feeling different types of plants and soil. The children will take their newly planted seed home, along with instructions on how to care for their new plant. This workshop will stimulate all five senses for a fun and lasting experience.
This educational program supports Douglas County Conservation District’s goal to encourage the community to produce more of its own food. By educating students to appreciate the relationship between themselves and the food they eat, we are empowering them to choose more sustainable lifestyles into adulthood.
For this workshop, space is limited and pre-registration is preferred. Visit GrowInDoug.com to register. This program is brought to you by The Douglas County Conservation District.
