Library offers garden workshop for kids
To go along with the Jackson County Public Library’s mission to help patrons connect, learn and grow, it is presenting Ready, Set, Dig!, a growing reader’s garden workshop.
The workshop is for kindergartners through fifth-graders. Meetings will be from 9 to 10 a.m. Wednes-days in June through July 27 and from 5 to 6 p.m. Aug. 3 through 31 at the community garden at Margaret R. Brown Elementary School, 550 Miller Lane, Seymour. The class will not meet July 6.
These weekly one-hour workshops will focus on and encourage a lifetime connection with nature, healthy eating habits, organic gardening, problem solving, self-reliance and community awareness.
Transportation will not be provided. Participants should dress to get dirty. During inclement weather, the program will be at the Seymour Library, 303 W. Second St.
