MONROE CO., N.Y. — Monroe County 4-H is offering “Painting with Soil,” an online workshop on Monday, September 21st from 6-7:30 pm. If you have ever wanted to learn the difference between soil and dirt, and if all soils are the same, explore soil through a soil-painting workshop with the 4-H Youth Development team at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County.
Register to learn about one of our most important natural resources, soil. The many properties of soils bring beauty and color to our landscape, and serve as an important layer on our planet to provide habitat and nutrients for many organisms. Painting with the colors and textures of soil is a fascinating and a creative activity for all ages!
This event is free of charge due to the generous support of the Genesee Finger Lakes Chapter of the Air & Waste Management Association (GFLAWMA). Registered participants can pick up a soil painting kit at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County Office (2449 St, Paul Blvd, Rochester NY 14617) anytime during the week prior to this event. The soil painting kit will contain resources needed to participate in the workshop. The workshop will be limited to the first 30 registrants that sign up. Please register for this workshop by Monday, September 14th. Register using the following link: https://cornell.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIld-ugrD0iGdRhpzFMmleXOOhbieiRuYYd
