LOWELL | Military personnel currently serving in any branch and component, as well as families of wounded or fallen service members, are invited to participate in a Military Family Gardening Workshop at 2 p.m. Saturday at Gardens on the Prairie, 3242 W. 169th Ave.

Indiana Operation: Military Kids is hosting this workshop for military families who are interested in starting a vegetable garden, or who just want to spend a fun afternoon together. The families will learn what seeds need to germinate, how to plan a vegetable garden, and will then plant their very own container vegetable garden to take home. Register at http://bit.ly/omkgarden1

Participants will receive a Burpee Welcome Home Garden. Burpee Seeds is distributing packets of seeds to America’s service members as a thank you. Each garden contains 12 packets of flowers and vegetables as well as recipes for family meals made with the produce.

For more information, contact Ryan Wynkoop, Indiana OMK coordinator, at (765) 494-9516 or rwynkoop@purdue.edu.
