Sign up time for Garden Club

The Red River County Public Library and members of the Red River Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists are offering the Library Learning Patch again this year.  Children from grades 1-5 are invited to sign up at the Library from January 9-27.  The program will run from February 21, 2012 through June 26, 2012 and will be held at the Library on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

Children will plant, tend and harvest their garden while learning about the natural world around them.  Utilizing the gardening experience as well as library books and fun, hand-on activities, the group will learn about such things as soil composition, helpful and harmful insects, birds, the water cycle, botany and the interrelation of plants, animals and humans.

Class size will be limited, so early signup is advised.  Older children wishing to serve as helpers are also invited to participate.

For further information, please contact Sheri Schwed at the Library, 903-427-3991.
