Afterward, take a short walk down to the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center for a tour of their new Outdoor Edible Classroom. Backyard Abundance — an educational non-profit helping to create landscapes that provide healthy food and habitat — will be on site coordinating classroom activities like painting decorative rocks and signs for the space, seed planting and handing out frosty treats.
