Looking for a fun way to spend a Saturday with your younger siblings? Growing Gardens, a local non-profit dedicated to cultivating community through urban agriculture, will host its 1st annual Children’s Peace Garden Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 21st, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Children’s Peace Garden located at 1630 Hawthorn in Boulder. The event is free and gives children ages 4-10 and their families the opportunity to explore the beauty of the gardens as springtime rolls around.

A variety of activities will be available for children in Growing Gardens' Children's Peace Garden. Attendees will have the opportunity to plant seeds to take home, visit a honeybee hive, explore the worm composting system, investigate insects’ habitats and create garden art installations. Food will be available for purchase and live acoustic music will be played as well.

Growing Gardens is located on the last remaining piece of agriculturally zoned land in Boulder. Throughout the day, tours will be given of this unique, urban agricultural site. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the Cultiva! Youth Project, Horticultural Therapy Gardens, Community Gardens and the Greenhouse.
