Bath-Brunswick land trusts seek 'Young Green Thumbs'

BATH — Two local land trusts are showing that you're never too late to have a knack for plants and wildlife.

Local Farms-Local Food, a collaboration of the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust and the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust to advocate local food and protect farmland, will offer free after-school programs throughout May.

"Young Green Thumbs: Spring Fling," will be offered at the Patten Free Library, 33 Summer St., each Wednesday afternoon for children age 4 and older. They will make spring-themed smoothies, learn about flowers and the life stories of amphibians, and try writing poetry about pollinators, according to a press release.

The four-part series takes place at the library's children's room from 4-5 p.m., and pre-registration is not necessary. Log onto kennebecestuary.org or call 442-8400 for more information.
