- Taste tropical produce from around the world
- Learn about chickens, carnivorous plants, composting and bees
- Get a free children's book from Durham's Partnership for Children and read it in the story circle
- Make a corn necklace and hear a seasonal story from Lumbee cultural educator Ryan Dial-Stanley
- Play with mud

This is a free drop-in event, though Duke University parking fees apply. Adult chaperone required for children. If the weather forecast is rainy, please check back for updates regarding the activities we'll offer. We look forward to celebrating with you!
