Did you know that many vegetable scraps can be sprouted and grown into new plants? Join in on the race to sprout your kitchen scraps! First, we will spend President's day morning at Jenkins learning about the grwoth cycles of plants and potting up our own vegetable scraps to bring home. In this hands-on workshop we will explore the growth process of many vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, and beans! Four weeks later, we invite you to bring your sprouts back to Jenkins to be put on display for a weekend show and contest. Show us what you have grown! With categories like "Longest Sprout," "Biggest Leaves" or "Sturdiest Sprout," everyone is sure to win. Children of all ages are welcome to join with adult accompaniment.
Free of charge, all are welcome. No pre-registration required.
