Learning in full bloom: Children learn about gardening at latest iteration of Park Tales
The Malibu Library’s Park Tales event on Aug. 8 offered an interactive story time where toddlers and children learned and participated in a bit of gardening.
The event took place at Bluffs Park under a canopy in the play area. Participants included attendees of the library’s Parent and Me program.
Librarian Insley Julier first read stories with garden themes before bringing out an interactive felt board. Children were given colorful felt pieces that would create the landscape of a flowerpot and garden.
Afterwards, participants created paper flowers and planted poppy seeds into a biodegradable flower pot that can later be placed into the ground.
The City of Malibu’s Environmental and Sustainability Department donated the seeds and provided information on landscaping, gardening and drought-tolerant plants.
