Fall Gardening Day

Learn about our garden and paint pumpkins at the Interfaith Works Food HUB!

On Saturday, Oct. 16, the Interfaith Works Twinbrook Food Hub will offer a two-part event for children and their families: Pumpkin Painting and a Garden Tour!

There are three time slots for this 40-minute event, and registration is required. The first 20 minutes will be for pumpkin painting. The second 20 minutes will provide a chance to learn about the Food Hub’s garden and how Interfaith Works provides free food each week to over 400 families in need. At the end of the event, we will give families an opportunity to plant a bulb for spring.

Please only register children so we can ensure that each child receives a pumpkin to paint.

Volunteers will accompany each group and are available to help children paint or harvest seeds. We will also teach the children how plants make seeds and why now is the best time to plant seeds for next spring.

Each family will receive: a pamphlet of seed and gardening information; a coloring page of a fall scene; a few pumpkin seeds; and a little pumpkin to take home!

Volunteers will arrive at 9 a.m. to help set up for the first group at 9:30 a.m.

 

 

El 16 de octubre ofrecemos un evento de dos partes: ¡Pintura de calabazas y The Harvest Tour! Habrá 3 oportunidades de inscribirse el sábado para participar en actividades y aprender sobre el proceso de crecimiento. Los primeros 20 minutos serán para pintar, y los segundos 20 minutos serán para la gira de cosecha. ¡Al finalizar, daremos a las familias la oportunidad de plantar un bulbo para la primavera en el espíritu de cosecha de otoño! Por favor, solo inscriba a los niños para asegurarse de que cada niño reciba una calabaza para pintar.

 

Los voluntarios acompañarán a cada grupo durante todo el proceso y incluso ayudarán a los niños a pintar o cosechar semillas. 

Enseñaremos a los niños cómo las plantas hacen semillas y por qué ahora es un buen momento para plantar semillas para el próximo año. Los voluntarios llegarán a las 9:00 a.m. para ayudar a establecerse para el primer grupo a las 9:30 a.m.

 

Proporcionaremos a las familias: un folleto de información sobre semillas y jardinería, una página para colorear de una escena de otoño, algunas semillas de calabaza y su propia calabaza pequeña para pintar y llevar a casa.
