We had so much fun at the museum on Saturday. It may have been hot and humid but our position on the porch protected us from the worst of the heat. NRCS and the Lexington County Master Gardner Volunteers joined us on the porch and the SC Governor’s School for the Arts & Humanities set up in front of the main office where they let visitors make their own endangered plant stickers. NRCS gave away posters and taught visitor about soil, while we gave away seeds, shared interesting (and maybe disturbing) bee facts, and let visitors decorate our chalkboard. The museum hosted tours through out the day and had an indigo dying station.

 

About 70 people visited the museum over the weekend and we hope that we can double or even triple that number for the next Ag + Art Tour.
