ERS recently welcomed the early arrival of spring with the first ever Spring Celebration on April 6. The event was another great opportunity for staffers with children to gather for fun activities and of course, plenty of refreshments.
A total of ten children filled ERS' largest conference room for egg painting and decorating. There was also an egg hunt, and the kiddos even got to dig in the dirt to help plant the deck garden -- another ERS first. The children helped mix soil then transplanted a variety of vegetables and herbs, including lettuce, a tomato plant, basil, thyme and mint.
In a few months, much of the vegetables and herbs will need to be harvested, and we could sure use those tiny hands to help again. Summer Celebration, anyone?
