Approximately 30 parents and children came to the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens this morning for the first Sunflower Saturday reading and gardening program.
The children listened to story books read by Faye Mihuta, one of the community gardeners and a reading specialist, and then planted sunflowers seeds with Jess Clauser, another community gardener, that they could take home.
The Sunflower program will be held each Saturday through August 4. It starts promptly at 9:30 and is free.
The reading program is followed at 10 a.m. by a garden or art activity and the material fee for that is $5 per child.
In the event of rain, the program is cancelled for the day.
