Is that a good bug, or a bad bug? Did you know that in the garden, there is a difference? Children ages 5-12 are invited to join us for a class about BUGS. Students will learn that there are many types of garden insects. We will discuss the life cycle of insects and how each type plays a role in the garden ecosystem. Some are friends in the garden and others are foes in the garden. We will be able to discuss what makes something a pest and identify some of the beneficial insects that are the natural enemies of common garden pests. Birds are friends to the garden eating insects, so we will make a simple bird feeder to add to your garden.

This is a rain or shine event so don’t forget to bring rain jackets if it looks threatening. Wet days are wonderful for going on a bug safari! If you sign up for the class and something unexpected comes up, please let us know so we can open those spaces up to other children.
We look forward to seeing you on the farm!

Please, join us for a picnic after the class.
