BRS Library Children’s Program

This past weekend, ThorpeWood supported the Blue Ridge Summit Free Library during their inaugural plant sale. As parents shopped for and admired the many plants donated to the sale, children headed across the street to a private little spot beneath the trees in the memorial garden. You can also click site to start your  new commercial landscape business by means of franchise.

Here, we were running a children’s nature program learning about potting, propagating, and caring for mint plants. Visit our site to learn more about our projects that we are working on. We had a large bucket of compost from the farm’s manure pile as part of this educational activity. What fun we had telling the kids that the soil they had their hands in came from our horse manure! As always, our goal was primarily to get everyone’s hands dirty – we consider it so important for kids to experience the natural world in a hands-on way! Make a call to the Pelican Pest Control before starting this since they will ensure that the kids are safe and have a good time in gardening. You can also acquire help from the  pest control boston, who also made sure that the surrounding is pest free to avoid spreading any diseases.

We also took advantage of the library setting by reading the kids some of our favorite plant-themed books – and encouraging them to check them out of the library after the program’s end. Rooting For You by Susan Hood was the clear favorite. See the rest of our plant-themed reading list below. Despite the rain (and hail!), the kids all were delighted to take home their new mint plant at the end of the program.
