Mosaic employees got a chance to share a small part of what they do every day with their family and friends during the Mosaic Family weekend, which was held July 29 and 30 at the Florida Children’s Museum at Bonnet Springs Park in Lakeland, Florida.

The weekend included free admission to the museum, educational talks and a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Mosaic Dig Pit, where children can dig for fossils and bugs. On Saturday, the educational programming was led by Mosaic Lead Engineer Veronica Figueroa, who gave guests insight into the mining process, land reclamation and even jobs available at Mosaic. Children were able to color on the Mosaic Phosphate coloring wall and received their own pot with soil and seeds to take home and plant. On Sunday, Kevin Sapp, Senior Lab Supervisor of the Bartow Quality Control Lab, led the programming and shared about his role in helping the world grow the food it needs.

In addition to the Mosaic Dig Pit, Mosaic is also the proud sponsor of Mable the Mosaic Owl, a themed play structure in Bonnet Springs Park located just a short walking distance from the museum.

“We’re proud to support the Florida Children’s Museum and we’re excited for kids to be able to experience the Mosaic Dig Pit,” said Mosaic Public Affairs Manager Morgan Odum. “Our employees are at the heart of what we do, and we’re glad they were able to share part of Mosaic with their families this weekend.”
