A few weeks ago, I lead an impromptu gardening program in our Shipyard. I had some beautiful cucumber plants that needed a home, so I thought – what better place than the empty planters outside? I had lots of eager visitors help me with the digging, planting and watering!
We hold a lot of gardening and nature programs at the Museum & Theatre. You can learn about foods that come from plants (like our cucumbers) during Sowing Seeds: Farmer’s Market and Harvest Time. Plant Play teaches our visitors how plants grow and thrive, you’ll even go home with your very own leaf rubbing! Nature Treasure Box is one of my favorites, I find treasures from the outdoors or the Museum collection and share them with visitors – it’s a surprise every time!
We hope to see you at one of our many nature programs at the Museum & Theatre. Here are photos from the cucumber planting!
