Program teaches youth about gardening


WILLMAR -- Kandiyohi County 4-H and the Willmar Public Library have partnered again this summer to teach Willmar area youths about science through the 4-H on Wheels program.

This year's theme is "Let's Get Growing," which children's librarian Kathy Torkelson said conveniently ties in with the library's summer reading theme.

"Since the theme is 'Let's Get Growing,' we're learning about gardening, plants, soil and where plants come from," program leader Rachel Arnold said.
