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.
