There are also crafts and a game or two along the way. In addition, the Farmington Community Library will handle Little Sprouts, MSU's Robin Danto will present her own kids activity and special guest Peter Schreimer, America's Nature Guy, will make an appearance. So bring the kids and have fun with your food!
