Book reading and imagination-themed activities will take place in Windrush Gardens at Burden every 30 minutes beginning at 9 a.m., with the last storybook reading beginning at 11 a.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult in order to participate.
“The idea for storybook telling is based on the Storyteller’s Garden in Grasmere Cumbria, England,” according to LSU AgCenter professor Becky White. “After seeing the storyteller’s garden, I felt Windrush Gardens would be the magical place to transport children’s imaginations.”
Working with the LSU AgCenter as a community partner, the Junior League of Baton Rouge will provide the storytellers for this event.
Windrush Gardens at Burden is located at 4560 Essen Lane just off Interstate 10 in Baton Rouge. Participants must enter through the LSU Rural Life Museum. The gardens are open to the public through the museum, which also is located at Burden. Admission is $3 per person.
