A Look Back

A Look Back!

Let's Get Growing and Kids Can Cook! Program highlights.

A special look back at the Let's Get Growing! and Kids Can Cook! programs at Reeves-Reed Arboretum.

As all the children's programs wrap up for the season at the Stackhouse Education Center, the gardening and cooking programs have also ended. The sounds of children's laughter, and squeals of sheer delight, have ceased in the Wisner house kitchen.

The Square Foot Garden has been prepped for the winter and put to bed. The garlic cloves have been tucked snugly in the ground for next year's harvest, with visions of all the scrumptious recipes they will enhance dancing in my head.

I think back on the many teachable moments in the garden, and in the kitchen, with topics such as: Get digging get dirty; zoodle noodle; presto pesto; pollinator power; 3 sisters and a scarecrow; squirmy wormy; bug mania; and the Upside Down Gardener. With a sigh, I know we've had a Good season, Good food, Good times!

Join me as a we take a final look back at the 2019 gardening and cooking programs, and all the fun that was had, in this special photo retrospective.
