The Hardin County OSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are hosting a children’s program at the Friendship Gardens called “Let’s Get Gourdy!” on Saturday morning, October 7. This event is from 10:00 am until noon and will provide several activities for kids ages 5 and up.
We will make birdhouse gourds, gourd ornaments, paint stones to look like pumpkins, and have a scavenger hunt. Visit the children’s garden and get a picture as a butterfly, play tic-tac-toe, dig in the garden trug and find the fairy gardens. Come see what is new in the garden this year. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. The event will take place at the Friendship Gardens of Hardin County, which is located at 960 W. Kohler Street in Kenton.
Children ages 5 and up are welcome with a responsible adult. The adult must remain with their children for the entire event. Wear old clothes as we will be making birdhouse gourds along with gourd ornaments; and participants will be painting stones in addition to other activities in the Friendship Garden. The event is free and open to the public with no registration necessary. Come enjoy fall activities in the garden! Questions about this event can be directed to the Hardin County OSU Extension Master Gardeners Facebook page or by calling the OSU Extension office at 419-674-2297.
