Old Time Farm Day- October 2016

Project County: Butler | Project Year: 2016

It’s a Family Affair! Greenville, Alabama was the location for Butler County’s Annual Old Time Farm Day. The two day weekend event features a Kid’s Day on Friday and general public on Saturday.   Butler County Soil and Water Conservation District set up a booth. This year’s theme was POLLINATORS – OUR HARDWORKING HEROES.  Hands on outdoor education activities included making bee and butterfly pollinators. Each child then “pollinated” a flower with “glitter” pollen. There were approximately 400 children present on Friday and 2,000 attendees on Saturday. Beautiful weather helped in making this another successful outreach opportunity in sharing conservation education for all ages!  Mid-South RC&D was there!
