Bonnie Davis and Rose Trunzo dig up their secrets to making a great garden.

Kathy Heinz offers hands-on, educational projects for little ones at the Community Rec Center.
The dinosaur may be extinct, but after a few million years, they’re hotter than ever. Kathy Heinz made the dinosaurs come alive with “Dinosaur Days” at the Peters Township Community Recreation Center. Heinz taught several area kids the fun facts about fossils. She created volcanoes, dinosaur eggs and a geyser. The class is geared for children between the ages of two to six. Heinz wants the kids to get the science bug early by offering up some cool, fun projects. The volcano is probably the most famous of the fun science projects, made with vinegar and baking soda. The boys and girls get a kick out of watching a plastic bottle bubble and foam. The dinosaur eggs were plastic dinosaurs ensconced in a mixture of coffee grinds, flour, sand, …
