Join "The Groovy Green Gang" on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school May 8th through May 24th. This cool camp will give you access to all the fun and games at the community center plus an amazing rooftop gardening and outdoor art experience.

The program is sponsored again this year by The Plant Stand.
Activities include raised bed gardening, tower gardening, worm farming, leaf rubbings, solar printing, river rock marker painting and more. Geared for middle school students. Free transportation from school. Kids can stay as late as 6 p.m.
Each participant will receive a FREE plant and achievement certificate.
