    When: Saturday October 28, 9:00 am-12:00 pm

    Where: Ault Park, 5090 Observatory Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio 45208

    We are continuing our partnership with Ault Park and planting trees in areas where we removed honeysuckle! The area that was a former soccer field is looking to get a makeover and we hope to contribute to the process. Tools will be provided but bring gloves. We suggest wearing long pants and closed toed shoes as well for safety.

    We will meet at the small shelter which is just off of Observatory Circle to the outside, the same location we met for the honeysuckle removal events. Email nhenger@takingroot.info with any questions you may have.

    After training and shadowing, Education Volunteers lead groups of 10 children to specific stations around the Farm. There is a 15 minute lesson at each station. Of course, this is not a lecture but give-and-take with the children. Most tours include planting a seed, exploring the Children's Garden, learning about honey bees, meeting farmyard animals, grinding corn and feeding chickens.
