We hope you enjoyed last week's planting as much as we did! Our summer series of kids events will continue this weekend. Come learn about urban agriculture with our friends at AMPS. We will also be making stamps out of local squash, cucumbers, and potatoes and using our stamps to create some fun pictures. Take home some knowledge about urban agriculture, a lovely stamp picture and a prize!
