Join us on Saturday, May 18th, from 10:00am-11:30am for the second event in a series of four seasonal storytelling programs for families.
Michigan Humanities Touring Artist & Storyteller, Jenifer Strauss, will present an interactive program for families who wish to celebrate the beginning of gardening season!
Master Gardener, Jenny Jean will bring her gardener’s tools, and puppet friends, Herman the Worm and Lady Bug Lu to tell stories and sing songs about growing things that are healthy and green!
Create a rainstorm, sing a rainbow and learn the Growing Green Bean Dance in this well-rounded program for families with children 3-7 years of age.
There will be a special planting project to celebrate the beginning of garden season! Each participant will be planting a bean seed that can then be planted in their own gardens at home.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Please RSVP here on MyNorth Tickets if you're able — it helps us know how many to expect for this special event.
