Rockland — On Saturday, Dec. 21, from 11 a.m. to noon, visitors to the museum will be invited to make lovely pomander balls of orange and cloves with volunteers from the Good Tern Natural Foods Co-Op.

A pomander is an aromatic decoration that dates back to the middle ages and the modern form uses natural materials to create a natural ornament that smells as sweet as it looks. Once the studded orange is dried it can last for years making it a great gift. Hang these decorations on the Christmas tree, in  closets or anywhere that needs a little lift.

This is the second workshop born out of a new partnership between the Coastal Children’s Museum and Rockland’s own Good Tern Co-Op.

“This is going to be a really fruitful partnership, “ said Megan Rogers, outreach coordinator for the museum. "We’ll be presenting fun seasonal programs which try to nourish visitors in all different ways — healthy, local food, with fun — and with friends new and old.”

This workshop is included in the price of admission and free for members. Sign up is appreciated, but not required. To sign up please email info@coastalchildrensmuseum.org or call 596-0300.
