Happy Earth Day my friends .. it is finally a beautiful day here in Kansas City and life is getting busier with the garden and other outside projects. We’re currently carving out a little spot for a strawberry patch to add to our growing list of fruits and berries in the backyard.

I wanted to remind you all of our first Spring Family Nature Hike coming up this Sunday at 3:30 at the Parkville Nature Sanctuary. We usually meet at the front parking area, but take a look at the details here.  Also, the May hike has been cancelled but we will have another one in June and maybe a couple of hikes in the summer.  Look for details on a Five and One trip to Beanstalk Children’s Garden this summer.  It is a fantastic place to get inspired and we will be doing a tasting tour of some of the tasty fruits and veggies they have growing.  It is a great place to explore garden life and the five senses with children.

Enjoy this beautiful day connecting to nature with your family!
