As Spring unfolds, WOW! is preparing our summer garden exhibit for the year. It’s a way for kids to dig in the dirt, understand how plants grow and what it takes to grow your own food. WOW! even uses some of the leafy greens and vegetables to feed our resident bearded dragon Lulu.
As part of this exhibit, kids are invited to participate in our monthly Get Growing! with Ollin Farms programs. Each month kids can come in and meet the farmers from Ollin Farms, help prepare our planting beds, plant seeds, pull weeds, and harvest vegetables. Our Get Growing! series kicks off this April where we’ll plant seeds in our garden, and kids will be able to plant their very own seed to bring home!
This program is included with Museum admission. Below are the dates and times for the Get Growing! with Ollin Farms program for 2014:
