BELOIT (WREX) — Some kids spent time learning about food in a garden over the weekend.
“Nature at the Confluence” in South Beloit hosted “What’s Growing in Rabbit’s Garden?” for kids to learn about different food growing on plants.
Kids got to pick food off the plants and sample variety. They also got to learn how plant seeds grow.
The program is a way for kids to know more about what they eat and healthy food options.
“It’s absolutely important they understand where their food is coming from. A lot of people don’t even know a potato plant, most people don’t even know what a potato plant looks like,” said Therese Oldenburg at Nature at the Confluence.
Nature at the Confluence will continue to host several free events throughout the summer for kids ages 4-7.
