This year we join local libraries and community partners for the tenth year of the Longwood Gardens’ Community Read — a program designed to encourage reading for pleasure and start a conversation. In 2023, the Community Read program takes a look at how food is a connector of people —especially for special moments — and how food connects to the world of plants and gardening.
The Delaware Museum of Nature and Science is delighted to be part of Community Read with a special program tailored for our young friends. In the children’s book, Bring Me Some Apples and I’ll Make you a Pie, by Robbin Gourley, the characters focus on farm-to-table all year round.
