SHARE-THE-PLATE
Every month we share our offerings with a community group whose mission is consonant with ours. This month we have selected the Meadville Parks Program. Creating Landscapes LLC and other collaborators combined their efforts to offer free morning and afternoon programming for kids at Huidekoper Park and other Meadville City parks. For eight weeks in June, July and August the program will provide supervised nature filled days for children and families. The program will provide children with a safe and beautiful space for learning and nutritious food.
