New series taking kids into the garden

PlantThe Newcastle Public Library is helping children develop their green thumbs heading into the spring gardening season through its new Garden Club.

The group will meet at 4 p.m. on 10 consecutive Wednesdays, beginning March 7 and running through May 9.

Children second grade and older are invited to participate, and they’ll learn about growing vegetables and preparing them for eating in the first activity using the new Newcastle Community Garden located at the library.

Representatives from the McClain County OSU Extension Service will lead the programs, and participants who attend all 10 sessions will be certified as Junior Master Gardeners.

Registration is required in advance.
