Local Food is offering a free children's activity series "Young Green Thumbs" at the Patten Free Library in Bath each Wednesday in April.
Local Farms - Local Food is a collaboration between the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) and the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust to celebrate local food and agriculture in the Bath-Brunswick region. KELT's Education Coordinator, Becky Kolak, will offer agricultural themed activities, discussion, and crafts.
Exposing children to the wonders of growing food, whether plants or animals, is an important step to healthy eating habits. The connection of food from the farm to the plate is a fun and active journey. Children will start a summer vegetable garden, marvel at the intricacies of soil, become chefs of homemade pesto, and learn the amazing story of farm sheep!
