Food for Thought
Home School family class
November 10, 2021 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
When you ate breakfast this morning did you stop to consider the source of the food you ate? Have you ever wondered who the first people to eat carrots were? Or how about peanuts? We will have fun considering the history of some of the food we grow and you will be challenged to consider where some of your favorite foods come from. We will also be treated to a tour of the vegetable garden with the Director of Leu Gardens, Robert Bowden, our resident vegetable expert.
Home School classes are priced for one adult and up to two children to attend. The classes are primarily geared for 9 to 12 year olds. (Younger children may attend but the parent should be prepared to help them with certain activities.)
Instructor: Sandi Linn, Education Supervisor.
Prior to working at Leu Gardens, Sandi was the Director of Education at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens, and then the Curator of Education at the Orange County Regional History Center. She is the author of Invasive Species, a YA fictional novel incorporating real environmental concepts.
Special Guest: Robert Bowden, Director
Robert Bowden is the Director of Leu Gardens and author of Florida Top Ten Garden Guide by Sunset Books and Florida Fruit and Vegetable Gardening: Plant, Grow, and Harvest the Best Edibles by Cool Springs Press.
