10:00-12:00 “Second Saturday” Community Activity
A balance of light, water, and temperature bring the growing season, and with it the Midtown Farmers Market. Our planet is tilted, that’s why we have seasons, and why the Market doesn’t last all year long. Draw your shadow, notice where our star – the Sun – is in the sky. Talk about the Solar System and our planet’s place in it. Decorate and take home a gnomon. Everyone is welcome to join!
