Spend the summer square-foot gardening at the Eco-Justice Center

When and where? An introductory session for parents and children will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. April 16 at the Education Station, 7133 Michna Rd.

Why go? You’ll get to pick your plot, choose and plant the vegetables you want to grow and get the basics of gardening.

When the weather warms up enough in May, families are invited back to get their seeds and seedlings put in their own plot. During the growing months you come weekly (or oftener) to care for your 20 square foot garden by weeding, watering and harvesting. The Eco-Justice Center staff will be available to help and guide you as needed. In fall, you are expected to put your garden plot “to bed” for the winter by clearing out the dried up vines.

Cost? $25 fee for a summer of square foot gardening includes the plants, seeds, tools, water and mentoring. Call 262-681-8527 to register and reserve a spot. There is a limit of six plots; some families may choose to share a garden plot.

Canine Easter Egg Hunt

When and where? Noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 16 at 3 Goldens And A Gator, 5200 Douglas Ave.

Why go? Bring your dog (leashes required) to hunt for Easter Eggs. All Easter Eggs will be filled with either dog Treats, multiple coupons from the three business participating in hunt, or a winners card for a grand basket (one from each of the three participating business). There will be games to do with your dog and an obedience demonstration presented by Katies's Canine Klubhouse. They will also be taking donations for Orphan Canines and Hope Safe House during the event.

Cost? Free
