Local Farms Local Food and the Patten Free Library offer children’s afterschool programs celebrating springtime

BATH – Local Farms Local Food is offering a free children’s activity series “Young Green Thumbs: Spring Fling” at the Patten Free Library in Bath each Wednesday afternoon in May. Local Farms – Local Food is a collaboration between the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust and the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust to promote local food and conserve farmland in the Bath-Brunswick region.

Children ages 4 and up are invited to explore the joys of springtime and investigate what makes spring an important time for plants, wildlife, and us. Kids will make fresh, healthy spring-themed smoothies; discover the inner workings of flowers; explore the life stories of amphibians; and try their hand at writing poetry about pollinators!

The four part series will be held in the children’s room at the library from 4:00 to 5:00 pm. No pre-registration is necessary to develop a ‘green thumb’!

May 7: Flower Power!

May 14: Passionate about Pollinators

May 21: Let’s make a smoothie connection.

May 28: It’s not easy being green.

Parents are welcomed and encouraged to take part in the activities. These programs are generously supported by the Elmina B. Sewall Foundation and the Davenport Trust Fund. The Patten Free Library is located at 33 Summer St. in Bath. For more information, please visit or call 207-442-8400.
