 During this workshop kids will explore his dream during a workshop at the Wilton Historical Society.  Museum Educator Lola Chen will talk about Dr. King’s ideals as the children plant seeds of different shapes, sizes, and colors, which will soon sprout side by side.  The kids will be taking home their planters to watch the seeds grow.  Once the plants are large enough, they can be transplanted into a pot and later to the garden. The workshop includes a "birds of pizza snack that the children will make. The cost for this workshop is $10 per child with a maximum of $25 per family.
