Garden Scavenger Hunt with the AC/SPIN Kids!

Last Teaching day for the SPIN and Adventure Club Youth
It’s unbelievable to think this was the last day of the 2015 garden season with the Adventure Club and SPIN kids from the Stillwater Area Schools!  We sweltered as we re-visited the season’s lessons and observations with a Garden Scavenger Hunt.  

They had no trouble finding items such as squash bugs, cucumber leaves with fungal diseases and corn tassles!  We harvested lots of veggies and then collapsed on the picnic tables for our watermelon and a special DQ Dilly Bar treat.  

A perfect ending to a perfectly hot day!  Thanks for your smiles, enthusiasm and helping hands this year!  Best wishes to all for a wonderful new school year.  See you next season!


A big THANKS goes out to our special visitors Kelsey and Judy as they visited The Giving Garden for the first time!. 

  

We hope you will come back!
