Eco-Tots

Once a month we lead our tiniest farmers through a series of delightful multi-sensory stations based on our main initiatives Eat, Grow and Make. Toddlers and their parents partake in daily farm routines including garden care and a rotating selection of songs, stories, and art projects.

This month’s activity:

  • Flower Flags  – Create and wear a rainbow of color made from the same natural materials! For thousands of years, people have been making and dyeing clothing using locally-available materials from plants, animals, and minerals. Try the “hapa-zome” technique (it means “leaf-dye” in Japanese), to pound flowers and leaves into cloth, and create an instant natural dye print!

After Eco-Tots, stick around to take part in our Second Saturdays programming! Click here to learn more about this free offering.
