Every spring without fail, I host a gardening-themed storytime at Richland Library Northeast. Watching seeds sprout, buds open, and flowers drop away to reveal a tiny green bean or tomato is inherently exciting and educational, and let’s admit it – kids love to play in the dirt. But gardening is even more important in our urban and suburban community, where children are rarely exposed to food in its original state. Good nutrition is easier to encourage when your child is involved with the process, witnessing the magical transformation from seed to plant to lunch.

Basket weave like a Botswana. Take a ride in a Malian bush taxi. Bargain at a Nigerian marketplace. Play an El Salvadorian marbles game. Come see how people in other countries live through performances and presentations from many cultures by Peace Corps members.
