Passport to the Parks – Huntington Ridge @ Huntington Ridge Park
Jul 29 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

As the garden season winds down, it’s important to blanket your beds in cover crops. Come and see what that’s all about!

Every Monday starting June 10th through July 29th we’ll be at a different park in the city. This year we’re partnering with Linn County Education Outreach and we’ll be learning something new about agriculture- from how things grow to how we can make a positive impact on the environment. This program will be geared towards Pre-k- elementary aged kids. Attend more than five and earn an Ag Brag Certificate. We’ll also be connecting each site to the closest community garden/urban farm to give families the opportunity to learn about food production in their neighborhoods and how to get more involved in their own food production.

We always recommend confirming details before attending. We hope to see you there!
