Compost 101
Saturday August 25, 2018  |  2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
REAPS (Recycling & Environmental Action Planning Society), 1950 Gorse Street

Composting is the ultimate in recycling. In what other endeavor can we take things meant for the garbage -- those banana peels, apple cores, fall leaves, weeds, and animal bedding -- and turn it into something that will literally transform our garden. Pretty amazing stuff! While there are some rules to follow when learning how to compost, rest assured that they're pretty basic, and that, in the end, no matter how many "mistakes" you make, compost just happens.

“Do you believe in magic?”

PERFECT FOR AGES 3-9 RUNNING MAY 6 – 11, 2019

Presentation House Theatre is thrilled to present Linda A. Carson’s enthralling new spin on the much-loved children’s classic, Jack and the Beanstalk.

This imaginative adaptation finds Jack, a farmer’s son, surrounded by land that just won’t grow anything.

Compelled to sell his beloved toys to feed his hungry family, Jack instead trades them for magic beans, from which a towering beanstalk grows.

Jack climbs the beanstalk and is taken on an amazing journey filled with excitement and peril.

Children, young and old, will delight in this simple, but highly engaging, environmental tale.
