The Ark City Pre-K Program along with Cowley County Head Start partnered with the Cowley County K-State Research and Extension Office to host family events this week. Families received information about community resources and the Ark City Farm and Art Market along with supplies (and a demonstration) to make guacamole.
Around 50 families signed up, and all of them will receive a coupon to spend at the farmers' markets in Arkansas City or Winfield. This grant also provided teachers with the Creative Curriculum Garden Study, seed starter kits, seeds, and small grow lights for their classrooms.
Additional nutrition events are being planned for the summer.
