Engineering Month at the Children’s Garden Workshop

OCGreat Park_garden4KidsThe Quest To Build A Better Mouse Trap in the theme for the September 14th Children’s Garden Workshop at the OC Great Park Farm & Food Lab. 

The Children’s Garden Workshop  is a 20 minute sit down, interactive presentation followed by a craft and planting activity. The workshop is made to be  fun and engage in STEAMM inspired topics.

This season’s workshop series is designed to highlight the connection between nature and the core education disciplines of science, technology, engineering, arts, music, and math.

People love their gardens but unfortunately pest love them too!  Come and learn how people from all over the world creatively rid their gardens of unwanted pests.  Then, head on over to our Creation Station to construct your very own “critter-ridder” out of recycled materials.

  • All ages are welcome
  • workshops start every half hour from 11:00am – 1:00pm.

This program is produced  and presented by the City of Irvine’s Community Services Urban Agricultural Programs Division, and is supported by volunteers from the University of California’s Cooperative Extension Master Gardener program and Irvine Youth Action Team.

Don’t forget to visit the Farmers Market while your there.
