May: Garden Celebration

It's the final Science Saturday of 2018-2019! Come celebrate our time together, from summer camp to the monthly Science Saturdays. We'll have a celebration with treats and drinks made from the garden and have some fun activities like making beeswax products and getting the garden ready for the summer! Families are invited to come to the Yurt for the final portion of this special day to hang out with us as we celebrate the students and get feedback on how to make Science Saturdays even better!
