From 10 AM to noon on most Tuesdays and Thursdays in July, we'll have parent/self-guided learning stations where your children can have hands-on fun and take their projects home with them. This is a wonderful opportunity to help your children learn more about agriculture and spend some quality time together. While Make It Take It is free, signing up for a ticket is recommended to ensure there are enough supplies for all children. Please sign up on Eventbrite.
