Build a Sod Wall Saturday at Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Children’s Village
Did you know that early homesteaders on the plains lived in houses made of sod?
No trees had been planted yet, so settlers heading west used what there was a lot of, grass, to create a shelter.
You can help construct a sod wall tomorrow, June 16, at the Paul Smith Children's Village, part of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, in Lions Park.The sod wall construction is 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and it's free as part of the 'Summer of Power' Series of programs sponsored by Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power Company.
Children will learn the simple techniques of building a sod wall and will assist in the design and construction of a traditional sod wall.
Get active and get your hands dirty for free at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Children's Village.
