We brought back our annual Farmers Markets and we had a BLAST with The Learning Tree families! One of our Core Values is “Teaching A Green Lifestyle” and we love taking it to the next level by hosting a Farmers Market for LT families. Our Farmers Market is completely free and a great opportunity for families to enjoy an evening picking out fresh produce with their family. We have purchased all the produce from a local farmer called Bentley Lake Farm located in Howell, Michigan. This is another way we can thank LT families for choosing The Learning Tree to be a part of their child’s life.
We recently kicked off our Wellness Program, BLOOM for our employees. Our BLOOM team hosted these events and we were so grateful to bring a little health and wellness to the families.
Another FUN and new addition we added to our Farmers Market this year… The Learning Tree’s food truck, The Hive attended the Farmers Market with fresh homemade snacks for families to enjoy while they ‘shop’! This was a gift from us to families , as a thank you for being a Learning Tree Family. There was no charge for the delicious, fresh, produce!
