UPCOMING EVENT: 

Incredible Edibles!: Fun with Food for 6-12 year olds.

Join OSU Extension and the OSU Master Gardener Volunteers for their Spring Children's Workshop where your child will experience the opportunity to play with their food!
  
They will pound away on plant parts to create a masterpiece while learning about the natural dyes that come from the plants we grow. 

Children get crafty making cement leaves! The wet mess will highlight the shape and texture of common grocery store leafy greens, but dries into a unique work of art. 


Master Gardeners will guide participants in discovering what vegetables REALLY are!  Flowers, stems, roots and more!
