Calgary Farmer’s Market and Poppy Innovations’, is launching this garden club for kids aged 4 to 12 to get their hands dirty this summer. Learning how to sow, grow, harvest and prepare food will help kids develop gardening and cooking skills and empower them to make healthy food choices throughout their lives.
A public kick off will take place at the Calgary Farmers’ Market on June 4th 2016 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Come by and help us plant our garden and join in lots more gardening and craft activities.
The garden club will meet on Thursdays throughout the months of July and August at the Calgary Farmers’ Market. Activities will be lead by Poppy Innovations joined by various vendors at the Market and guest presenters from Agrium. Your child will be involved in cultivating our planter garden to learn all about plants, nutrition needed for healthy plants and healthy bodies, preparing nutritious child-friendly recipes with fresh produce, games and other activities to inspire children’s natural curiosity to try new vegetables and fruit.
Children will receive a credit for the market to enhance the lessons learned. You’ve got the option to sign up for one, or all of the unparented classes. Parents that sign up for all of the classes will receive a discount. Use this form to sign up for the classes and get growing!
