Join us for Storytime in the Big Red Barn on Wednesdays 7/ 12 – 8/30 from 10 am – 11 am

All mornings include a story, activity, and walks around Chestnut Farm and the Community Garden.

Families are welcome – Ages 3 – 8

$5.00 for each morning

Come join us for an interactive story hour. We will read a story and talk about nature, and our surroundings each week. Books and activities will be a different theme each week. We’ll read and learn about: planting seeds, insects, smelling herbs, bird watching, composting, harvesting, apple trees, pigs, and exploring textures.

Families are welcome to stay after storytime is done. Please feel free to bring a lunch and enjoy an outside afternoon! Picnic tables, and fresh mint or lemon water will be available each week.

 

 

Wednesday, 16 August: This week is all about compost! We’ll read the story Compost Stew and talk about all the things that go into making compost. We’ll dig into Fox Haven’s very own compost pile, a compost expert will answer kids questions, and help them mix food scraps into our compost pile. Students will get to pot a seedling using the compost and bring it home. Please feel free stay for lunch and enjoy the picnic tables outside at the big red barn. Cold mint water will be provided!
