What's On

Water City Workshop in the Children’s Garden

How do we

  • observe,
  • understand,
  • know,
  • contain,
  • transport

and otherwise guide water to nourish our Children’s Garden and ourselves?

We will answer these questions and more in a new discovery series during weekend programming in the Children’s Garden.

On weekends we will explore what it takes to care for and collect water resources. This will help us understand how water moves through our cities, homes and bodies.

These child-led engineering sessions will explore techniques to manipulate clay, willow and other natural materials in a ‘water laboratory.’

Participants are asked to bring vessels that can hold water, ideas and/or songs to assist children in understanding and experimenting with water.

On June 25, 2017 from 11am-3pm we will unveil our findings from two months of experimentation in the ‘water lab’. With music, costume and song we will follow the path of water through the garden and tour all the inventions made by kids. Costumes and instruments welcome!
