Got a budding gardener? If you don't have the space for your little ones to cultivate their own gardens, or if you just want to do something fun with them this summer, check out the Community Garden at Hallockville Museum Farm's “Garden Sprouts” program in Riverhead.
Children can rent a row in the garden and acquire life-long skills while working with veteran gardeners. They will learn where their food comes, become goal-oriented, and enjoy the fruits of healthy outdoor activities.
The Hallockville Museum Farm is a 28-acre farm with 18 historic houses, barns and outbuildings ranging from the mid-18th century Hallock Homestead to the Depression-era Cichanowicz Farmhouse. Its mission is to raise awareness of Eastern Long Island's agricultural heritage. The museum farm is located at 6038 Sound Avenue in Riverhead. For more details, call the Hallockville office at 631-298-5292.
