Music and farm fun for the family

Families with young children are invited to honor our mothers and Mother Earth with a morning on the farm. We’ll share in song, story, and the joys of planting in the spring. Some of what is planted will be donated to the local food pantry. 

When: Sunday, May 12, 10 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
Where: Living Tree Alliance, under the tent in the field, park at 96 Living Tree Lane
Who: Young children (1–7 years old) and their families; older siblings welcome
Cost: Sliding-scale donation, $18–$56 per family

We’ll start the morning with song and movement under the tent with Miss Andrea from Musical Munchkins. 

Then, we’ll have fun on the farm:

  • Decorating and planting flowerpots to give to moms and grandmothers
  • Planting veggies in the garden that will be harvested later for the food shelf
  • Visiting farm animals

While children are enjoying the farm with LTA’s farm educators, parents are invited for a discussion about bringing meaningful ritual into your child’s life with educator Melanie Grubman.

 

Schedule 

10–10:45 am:  Musical Munchkins with Miss Andrea (geared for families of young children with farm & mother themes)
