Rainbow Story Time
On Saturday, September 10th, 2022, at 11 a.m., Rainbow Collective for Change is hosting Rainbow Story Time, a bilingual (English/Spanish) story time.
Rainbow Story Times are an opportunity for all families to come together to enjoy diverse children’s books and participate in activities and crafts that support the themes of the month.
This month’s theme is names. The story will explore where our names come from, why it’s important to call people by the names they want and pronounce those names correctly.
All children will receive a copy of Your Name is a Song by Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow; The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi, or Alma and How She Got Her Name by Juana Martinez-Neal.
On Saturday, September 17th, 2022, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., it’s hosting a presentation about foraging, with Frank Hyman, a local mycologist and plant expert.
He will share foraging tips, mushroom knowledge, and highlights from his book, “How to Forage for Mushrooms (without dying).”
We’ll gather at the picnic tables in the mulchitorium to discuss and celebrate the natural world.
This event is part of Durham Co-Op’s month-long mushroom celebration. Visit the Co-op for a ‘shroomy September with bulk mushroom sales and new featured goods.
