Sprout It Out!

First Sprouts event is next week, y'all. I love summer.

Bring your favorite Sprout age 3-8 to the Market on Saturday, May 22, for a seed-planting workshop facilitated by Champaign County Extension's Master Gardeners and Market grower Tiny Greens.

Kids will get a chance to get their hands dirty and learn about how their food gets started during this workshop - the Master Gardeners will provide instruction and simple handouts, while Tiny Greens and Urbana's Market at the Square will supply the materials for the planting. The workshop is free of charge, open to kids ages 3-8, and will run continuously from 9 AM to 11 AM. Each Sprout will receive a certificate of participation and will take a future seedling home, with instructions for its care and planting.

Special bonus: All kids showing a certificate of participation at Art Mart Toys get 15% off any purchase in the toy store! Offer good only on 5/22 and only until 2 PM. Thanks, Art Mart Toys!
