2020 Kids Garden Club: Reimagined! 

Kids Garden Club Reimagined.
Join CFM Kids Garden Club leader Jodi Kushins, owner and operator of Over the Fence Urban Farm (OTFUF), for a three week series of educational activities focused on the garden this August.

Kids (and/or parents) can pick up a free packet of materials at the market tent while supplies last, and then tune in to OTFUF's Facebook Live feed on Tuesdays at 10 am for a related lesson broadcast live from the farm. (The videos will also be available to watch after the live broadcast on OTFUF's YouTube channel.) This week's activity packet will include seeds and an observation chart. Additional market day activities to be determined.

Packets are also available for reservation in the market's online store. Free downloads of all activities will be available on soon for a 100% contactless experience. 

Schedule of Topics
Week 1: Saturday, August 1 & Tuesday, August 4: SEED!
Week 2: August 8 & 11th: WEED!
Week 3: August 15 & 18: FEED!

This reimagined version of the Kids Garden Club is possible due to the generous support of PNC.

The goal of the Clintonville Farmers’ Market Kids Garden Club (KGC) is to teach neighborhood children ages 6-12 how to grow vegetables while cultivating their appreciation for the work of farmers. Participants will receive 3.5 months of garden education and will help to plant and maintain their own garden bed.
