On July 14, the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens Sunflower Reading and Activity will be books about jam and then a jam making class.
Community Gardener and Teacher Faye Mihuta will read two books starting at 9:30 a.m.
At 10 a.m., there will be a Children’s Freezer Jam Making Program with Diane Whitten, from Cornell Cooperative Extension. Children must be between 5 and 12 years old to participate.
Due to the anticipated popularity of this class, pre-registration is required.
If you are interested, please sign up your children up before July 7. Cost is $5. per child and space is limited.
We also need 5 adult volunteers. One per table to work with the children. These volunteers will need to be in the garden at 9:30 a.m. for a brief training session.
If you’re interested, sign up in the garden shed and leave contact information.
Children will be taking home a container of blueberry jam.
