IN-PERSON Garden Class - Landscape Design:

Does your child love to play in the soil or have an interest in gardening? Then this amazing program is meant for you! We will utilize the Junior Master Gardeners Curriculum to help students learn all about gardening. We'll spend the first half of class studying the science behind how things work and then head over to the community garden for the second half.

We’ll start off our growing year a little early in order to design the layout of this year's garden. In this class, we’ll learn how to make an outdoor area more beautiful and useful. This chapter covers the design process, allowing us to dream up our garden as a community as well as any home garden we hope to create and how that design can benefit the environment it is in.

 This class is designed for children ages 7-11 with the potential for further classes with the potential toward certification.

**Safety protocols will be in place. Please bring a mask when social distancing is not an option**

**Class will be completely outdoors - please dress for the weather**

We will meet  on Saturday, April 24th  at 1:00pm at the Tusten-Cochecton Branch. Register at

IN-PERSON Storytime Stroll: Families with children 5 & under - join us for this Storytime stroll! We'll use this time together to connect with other parents outside at a safe distance. Meet us at the Delaware Free Branch of Western Sullivan Public Library for a short walk to an open space that children can run around in safely, play toss or we can continue on a longer walk.

We hope you join us for this great opportunity for children and parents to begin to get out again and spend some time together in the community on Thursday, April 29th  at 2:00pm at the Delaware Free Branch. *Safety protocols will be followed, but please bring a mask for times when social distancing is not possible* Register at
