The children will nurture their plants at home until then, when they will plant the seedlings at the Champlain Community Garden on May 31, weather permitting.
Nicci Molinski, mother to a 3-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son, helped to plan the event.
The gardening activities, she said, will help get children involved in the village’s farmers market this summer — and it will educate them about health and fitness, too.
“We will have a pile of books, all about gardening, vegetables and healthy eating,” she said.
Molinski said that learning about gardening and vegetables will help promote a healthy diet and can help save money on groceries.
And the goal of Champlain Kids Connected kind of speaks for itself.
“We pretty much want to get our village and other communities in the area to get together outside of their home,” Molinski said. “It would be nice for everyone to meet each other.”
