North Haven Garden Club Youth Group and Junior Garden Club were thrilled to be part of Ulbrich Boys and Girls Club of North Haven first annual Day For Kids.
The event took place on the North Haven Town Green on Saturday Sept. 14, from 1 to 4 p.m. Along with other organizations and businesses of the North Haven community members of the North Haven Garden Club provided materials for the kids, both large and small, to make a herb or a flower pot for their windowsill. The kids had the choice of herbs which included basil, oregano, parsley, dill, thyme, cilantro, mint and tarragon and more or marigolds. Each child filled their pot with soil, sprayed the soil with a squirt bottle, added seeds and more soil and sprayed the soil again. Moms and Dads were advised to cover the pots with plastic wrap, which makes a mini greenhouse, place the pot in a sunny location and wait for the seeds to sprout.
Members who assisted Cindy Golia, project coordinator and Youth Chair were Betty East, Bene' Jablonski, and Marge Quinn.
