If 100+ degree temperatures don’t bother you, this sounds like a wonderful family activity. Tomorrow, July 24, from 12pm – 4pm, the public is invited to the Washington Youth Garden at the National Arboretum for a celebration of gardening and healthy kids. Enjoy live music, healthy snacks, gardening crafts and activities for children, and garden tours. Check out some beehives as the group’s beekeeper, Toni Burnham, gives a show-and-tell (but, hopefully, not touch).
The Washington Youth Garden was developed nearly 40 years ago to inspire children and families to engage in self-discovery, explore relationships with food and the natural world, and contribute to the health and well-being of their communities. Visit the website to learn more.
