Dig In


AHA and our partner Marbles Kids Museum hosted the 6th Annual  Dig In! at Marbles on Saturday, March 7, 2015, exploring urban agriculture, community gardens and edible gardens in school and child care settings, and family garden fun.

Participants attended how-to workshops throughout the morning, visited interactive, educational booths and had the opportunity to participate in hands-on service  at one of several area urban farms and gardens in the afternoon.
