THE CHILDREN’S WORKSHOP AT THE EXPO
The Children’s Workshop Room has become a favorite area at the annual Ellis County Master Gardener Lawn & Garden Expo. Both children and adults enjoy the educational exhibits, hands-on activities, and lively atmosphere of the children’s workshop room.
This year, we will have a special focus on edible landscaping. From seed to fork, there will be info and examples of how to grow your own veggies. To top it off, there will also be an exhibit of nature’s garbage disposal – worms! Worm composting is an excellent way to teach children about caring for the environment, so join us to learn more about what these creatures can do for your garden.
Parents and children are encouraged to bring their gardening questions to the numerous master gardener volunteers that will be available. Junior Master Gardener program volunteers will also be present to share information about the youth gardening program that supports hands-on learning experiences.
The Indian Trail Master Naturalists are always an important part of the children’s workshop room and working closely with the master gardeners will provide fun learning activities throughout the day. The workshop will be filled with activities for children and will also include a few take- home surprises.
Thanks to Texas Tree Farms of Waxahachie, they will also go home with a young tree to plant. The Children’s Workshop Room is sure to be buzzing with activity, so please plan on joining us.
