Event Description

We live in a vibrant state for food with over 88,000 farms that produce more eggs, corn, and soybeans than any other state. Along with a strengthened commitment to grow food for the local area, the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library invites students of all ages to join us on the first Saturday in July for activities about farming, nutrition, and composting. Come check out our new gardening space, growing orchard, and early work establishing a system for compost.

From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Iowa Arts Academy will join us as kids, teens, and adults will be able to harness energy from the sun to create “photographs” of collages made from various recycled objects. We will also have free seed balls and composting comics available to take home, so we can all help improve our environment. All students, from preschool through college get free admission.
