KPS4Parents and Green Art People are thrilled to bring a Learn & Grow kids’ project to Ventura. Kids ages 5 to 9 are invited to join us, along with at least one adult. This is a great activity for families of kindergarten and early elementary aged children.
We will show you how food comes from plants and how to grow your own food-bearing plants in self-watering containers made from recycled and/or inexpensive materials using simple tools. All container materials will be pre-cut and provided for participants’ use, along with soil and seedlings.
Donations to offset the costs of these events are appreciated, but not required. A donation jar will be available at the event or you can make a donation by clicking on the “Make a Donation” button in the upper right corner of this page.
While this event is offered at no charge, we still need to know how many containers we will be building so we bring enough materials. We don’t know how many containers we will be building if we don’t know how many children are coming. Therefore, registrations of child participants are needed so we know how much of everything to bring.
Please register and let us know you’re coming so we can give your kids the fun and engaging enrichment activities they deserve to enjoy! If you do not register your children, you are still welcome to come to the event, but we cannot promise that we will have enough materials on hand for your children to build and plant their own containers. Registered participants will be given priority access to materials.
If you are just interested in our gardening techniques and want to stop by and see what we are doing, there is no need to register. Simply kindly allow the children we’re teaching to have our undivided attention during the actual event. We can answer any questions you may have after the children have finished building and planting their containers.
