GrowME Next Week!

EggThis year our GrowME group will be visiting over 40 classrooms throughout the area and working with an estimated 700 kids in Guilford, Dover Foxcroft, Dexter, Milo, and Brownville. Activities include making animal graphs with kindergarteners, apple tasting and sorting with first graders, butter-making with second graders and a new activity with third graders: making “dirt babies.” Valley Grange volunteers are focusing on PCES as noted in the Bookworm schedule for the month. Additional information about the collaboration and activities can be found on the GrowME website.

The program wraps up with an Eggstravaganza hosted by Valley Grange on Friday, March 22. Volunteers, teachers, parents and kids are all invited to join a community potluck supper at 6 PM, followed by a short program at 7 PM. The program will offer some highlights of the week’s activities and the UMaine Extension’s virtual chicken who will show us how an egg forms inside a chicken! Folks are also invited to bring an unusual farm or kitchen implement for “show and share” to this celebration of agriculture from farm to fork.
