Harvest Time at the Green Thumbs Kids Club    Wed Aug 17, 2011, Ottawa, ON

One of the most popular kids’ events of the season at Pinhey’s Point has been the Green Thumbs Club! Get your kids interested in gardening this Wednesday August 17, as Pinhey’s Point Historic Site.

Bring your budding young green thumbs to the historic estate at 1:00 p.m., to spend the afternoon in the garden discovering the importance of plants and flowers and how to care for them.

This weeks games, activities and crafts will be focused around the harvest! Kids can join in and help tend to some of our crops and learn some simple recipes to make with our harvest!

When the late Hamnett Pinhey settled on the banks of the Ottawa River in the 1820s, he lived off the land and depended on his gardens as well as other wildlife for survival. Today, the landscape, gardens and lush vegetation of his estate looks much as it once did, which is one of the main reasons the Pinhey’s Point Historic Site is so special.

The museum is located at 270 Pinhey’s Point Road, in Dunrobin, off of 6th Line Road. Cost is $6/child, ages 6-12. For more information about this or any of Pinhey’s Point summer programming call 613-832-4347 or visit
