Who: Everyone is welcome! All Artists must be kids under 18 years of age who are accompanied by an adult.
Why: The event is being held to inspire and teach kids about the mushroom growing process, and to connect them to the farm through their art. Every kid will be given a space on the wall to paint their version of a mushroom.

learn about mushroom farming
We will have some exhibits set up showing the various stages of mushrooms from beginning to end. Kids can learn and ask questions about growing mushrooms and urban farming. Or just about where there food comes from in general.
Sometimes we take these things for granted, but the journey is a valuable life experience.
Express Yourself Through Art
Another thing we feel is very important is to express ourselves and incorporate beauty into our lives through art. We want your kids to have the opportunity to express themselves too. After all, they are the future of this planet.
