Color Me Healthy is a program developed to reach children ages four and five with fun, interactive learning opportunities on physical activity and healthy eating.

It is designed to stimulate all of the senses of young children: touch, smell, sight, sound, and, of course, taste.

Instructor:  Peggie Garner, Onslow County Extension Director

_____  Session 2:  9-11 a.m.

With Food, Land, & People, formal and non-formal educators participate in hands-on, interdisciplinary K-12 lessons on topics connecting people, the land we live on, and the food that sustains us. Instructors:  Peggie Garner and Diana Rashash
