A partnership between the MSU Extension and the Mason, Lake Oceana Great Start Collaborative is giving kids the chance to join free events each week at the Emanuel Lutheran Church in Ludington.

These free events are focused around the community garden, everything from physical activity by dancing in the garden, to trying the vegetables they are growing and learning unique things about them.

MSU, The Great Start Collaborative and members of the community coming together is why these events is able to happen. A massive partnership that even ties in a summer food program means there's a little bit of everything for everyone, all in one place.

If you'd like to learn more about the program or about the upcoming events, you can contact Kendra Gibson at 231-845-3363 or check out their Facebook pages.
