In an effort to grow a new generation of gardeners and get kids digging in the dirt, planting healthy, homegrown food this spring, Growums, the unique and engaging online gardening experience for kids and Bonnie Plants, the leading producer of vegetables and herbs in North America, are teaming up with The Home Depot, nationwide, for a “Kids Day Workshop”.
The free hands-on “How-To Workshop” will be held on May 5th at every The Home Depot store across the U.S.A., between 9:00 a.m. and noon. Kids, age 5 – 12, will have the opportunity to build their own garden planter box, paint and embellish it, while enjoying good, quality family time.
In addition to planter boxes, children will receive a Bonnie Plant, as well as cute coloring sheets, both featuring the “Growums” cast of characters with favorites like Hal E. Peno, Belle Peppa, Duke the Cuke and more. Each featured character is on “stick tags” inserted in the plant they represent, all have a code that allow kids to log on to www.growums.com and engage in a virtual world of interactive play with adorable, animated vegetable and herb characters that come to life and demonstrate gardening basics and encourage healthy eating.
Parents are invited and encouraged to bring their kids to this healthy-living themed workshop at local The Home Depot stores everywhere and get kids growing in the right direction!!
