Spring Farm Days educated kids and families on gardening with other fun activities at the Ag Museum this weekend.
“We have another event in the fall, Harvest Fest. Here’s the thing, you can’t have a harvest without putting something in the ground,” said Ag Museum Marketing Specialist Justin Nipper. “Spring Farm Days is all about putting things in your garden. This event focuses on empowering our guests and teaching them how to go home, plant a garden and be self sustaining at their house.”
In addition to train and hay rides, there were exhibits on soil, bee keeping, live farm animals, a farm equipment display and cooking demonstrations.
The event attracted multiple school groups including Kindergarten classes at Highland Bluff Elementary School who came for their annual field trip.
“We love that the kids have an opportunity to be exposed to things that they might not see on a normal basis,” said Highland Bluff teacher Amy Dennis. “They might know the whole process of going from the farm to the table.”
Spring Farm Days kickoffs the mueusem’s 40th Anniversary Celebration.
