Happy Saturday, friends of the Harrison Lewis Centre! We have a busy week coming up, with one of the events being a free workshop for seniors, those 55 and older, as well as their friends and family. This workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, May 30, and marks the first N2O Program session!
The Never-2-Old Program is a day-long workshop that happens once a month at the Harrison Lewis Centre; each day will consist of short presentations, guided nature walks, hands-on activities, led discussions, and a lunch! Presentations will focus on topics relating to the natural environment, rural living, gardening and farming, and local history. This Tuesday's workshop is called "Grow-A-Salad!" and will have participants planting their own vegetables in a planter box and then having fresh salad ingredients all summer long! Growing your own food is an easy skill to cultivate at any age, so long as you have a little bit of patience, and don't mind a little bit of dirt! :)
The schedule for Tuesday is as follows:
Participants arrive and are rarin' to go at 10:00 am, and get an introduction to the Harrison Lewis Centre, which will take about 30 minutes. From 10:30 to 11:30 is the Plant-Your-Salad Activity [some gloves available; you can, of course, bring your own, but where's the fun in staying dirt-free? (: ]. 11:30 to 12:00 is your time to relax around the center, have a coffee or tea and have a chat with all the lovely people around. 12:00 is lunch, which is provided, and goes until 1:00. Participants then get to take their soon-to-be-salad boxes home and enjoy!
There is a limit of 12 participants for this workshop! If you want to get your spot, please contact Cindy Hagen, at Studio 138, to register! 902-875-4797
