The Windrush Gardens at Burden will host Storybook Time on Saturday, Oct. 13 for children ages three to eight.

The event is presented by the LSU AgCenter and the Junior League of Baton Rouge.

Book reading and imagination-themed activities will take place every 30 minutes beginning at 10 a.m., with the last storytelling session at 11:30 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.

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.

Windrush Gardens at Burden is located at 4560 Essen Lane just off Interstate 10 in Baton Rouge. For further information contact Jeff Kuehny at 225-763-3990.
