Youth Garden Activities: 

Weekend 1

Saturday and Sunday Feb 14th and 15th: 10am-1pm 

Make your own Rodeo button! Kids will be able to make their own button to wear at Rodeo. This special button will be made out of Seed Paper, so after the day is done they can go home and simply throw the button in a pot of moist soil. After a few days they can watch their seeds grow and reminisce of Rodeo days past.

Saturday Feb 14th: 1:30pm-2:30pm
