Spring in My Backyard Kids Workshop

SBY Chicken Club 680x252

Our annual celebration of spring and Newton Unplugged & Connected month! This year over 100 kids (and older) joined us in planting seedlings, making a bird feeder from pine cones, discovering how to compost with wriggling red earthworms, and meeting animal friends: Tuxie the rabbit and three lively chickens.  One of the highlights: the chicken races – with each other and the bunny rabbit! Always fun, this program is co-sponsored by Green Newton, Newton Community Farm and the Newton Free Library, with special thanks this year to Grant Berman/Dirty Boys Composting.
