Stream Safari 4H SPIN
Tuesday, 09/27/2016 (04:00 PM - 06:00 PM)

Get your feet wet as you collect stream insects and learn about NH's stream ecology. This four day program offers engaging, hands-on activities through which youth will explore how water travels over the landscape connecting our backyards to nearby streams and rivers. Two of the days will be spent at a nearby stream exploring different parameters that will help youth determine the overall health of the water body. This is an investigative program that  requires critical thinking and cooperation among participants, but most of all it requires a willingness to ask questions, explore, and enjoy learning about our natural world!

Learn to Grow Garlic
Monday, 10/03/2016 (06:30 PM - 07:00 PM)

Come and listen to Naomi Scanlon of Two Sisters' Garlic at Clough Tavern Farm in Canterbury discuss how to plant and grow garlic.

 

October is the time to plant hard-neck garlic, which is usually harvested in the month of July. However, hard-neck garlic produces garlic scapes in June, which can be turned into a wonderful pesto or chopped up and used in your soups, marinades, roasts, and everyday recipes. Once the scapes are cut, all of the plant energy goes into growing the bulbs underground.

 

Come learn how easy it is to grow garlic and get your questions answered by Naomi at the Boscawen Municipal Complex (4th floor).
