Junior Farmers
Primrose Farm offers a unique way for children to
engage with history, explore agriculture and
examine the natural world. Even the littlest farmer
can become a protector of the past, an advocate
for animals and a steward of the environment. To
become a Junior Farmer, kids of all ages can pick
up an activity book in the farm office. Booklets cost
$2 and are available Monday to Saturday from

Junior Farmers will tour the site – visiting animals,

Farmer will check the work and award the new
Junior Farmer their very own Primrose Farm Junior
Farmer bandana!

most widely-practiced exercise in the world. It has
been shown to improve flexibility, strength,

The ancient Chinese arts consist of gentle, flowing
exercises that are combined with deep abdominal
breathing to promote the release of tension and
create a state of deep relaxation. Studies have
shown that participants who practice consistently
have improved balance, flexibility, coordination,
muscle strength (especially in the legs and hips)
and range of motion. The gentle, low-impact
movements have also been shown to benefit
those with arthritis and osteoporosis. Each class
begins with easy warm-up exercises that prepare
the muscles and support these ancient practices.

Memorial
Tree
Program
“Perhaps nature is our best assurance of immortality”
- Eleanor Roosevelt
Plant a Tree as a living memorial
to a special person or event
in your life.
A Memorial Tree is a beautiful way to honor a loved one, mark an
anniversary or special occasion and/or recognize an event or significant
achievement.
For years to come, a Memorial Tree will enhance our local environment by
stabilizing the soil and preventing erosion providing food and shelter for
wildlife supplying oxygen and improving air quality offering shade to lower
air temperatures and much more.
Tree Type Selection
A Memorial Tree will be chosen in consultation with
Park District staff, who will adhere to the tree planting plan
adopted by the St. Charles Park District. Species of trees
planted will be determined based upon planting location
and tree type needed for the chosen park site.
For more information regarding the Memorial
Tree Program, please call 630-513-4362.
