Just in time for spring, celebrate the season at the Issaquah History Museums' Depot Playdate on March 5, 2016.
Children of all ages are invited to the depot, 78 First Ave. N.E., for a hands-on exploration of one of the most eagerly awaited activities of springs past. Drop in between 11 a.m.-3 p.m. for the free event; coffee or tea is also provided.
Listen as kids and volunteers talk about where our food comes from, and where most peoples’ food came from 100 years ago. Did your favorite food exist back then? Could you have grown part of it in your yard?
Kids will plant (and bring home) a seed to grow into a bean plant. Participants will also be able to try out (with volunteer help) a centrifugal seeder.
The series is funded by 4Culture. At each event, participants are invited to do a hands-on activity and to examine related items from the Issaquah History Museums' collection. Visitors can get a deeper sense of Issaquah's past while they have fun.
