Our Garden Sprouts program has been meeting every Tuesday to plant seeds. So how is it “growing?” Great! We have lettuce, tomatoes, and corn sprouting as wells flowers like zinnias and morning glories. Kid also planted sunflowers and tomatoes to take home. Think you have what it takes to Garden Sprout? Join us every Tuesday at 4 pm to monitor the plants’ progress, help us weed the garden, and learn about growing a healthier you!
