TIDE MILL EXTRAVAGANZA!
FREE FAMILY WORKSHOP!
Saturday, May 4 from 1-4

Kids ages five and up! Come learn about the TIDE MILLS that once turned wheat into flour along the shores of Gowanus Creek!
Use a mortar and pestle to grind wheat to make flour!
Design your own mill wheel and test it to see if it works!
Observe the tides that still rise and fall on the Gowanus today!
See the original footprint of the miller’s house, and help us decorate it with sidewalk chalk!
