On Saturday, April 23, RDA will host Get Out, Get Dirty, Get Together at the South Early St. Community Garden. This event is a family-friendly garden party where the community is invited to come together to play games, eat garden-fresh food and remember the joys of being in nature.
Activities will include: burlap sack races, bean bag toss, fairy house construction, a garden scavenger hunt, pot painting, and, of course, fresh fruits and vegetables.
Brooke Seiz, a nutritionist with Natural Grocers, will also be there to teach “Building Meals for Superhero Health,” a special class for children and families.
“We’re happy we can be a part of an event that fits in so well with everything we’re trying to foster in the community,” Seiz said. “It’s so important for families and kids to get outside together. This is a great thing for families and kids to do to support their health, happiness, and overall wellness.”
This event focuses on the garden not only as a space to grow food, but also as a public space that the whole neighborhood can enjoy — gardener or not. Rosedalians of all ages are invited to join RDA as we celebrate all that community gardens can do.
So round up all your kids, parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins and bring them out to the South Early St. Community Garden from 2 to 5 p.m. on April 23.
