ElainsCape Eco Tours are offering their Little Green Fingers Tours again this holiday. These fun, educational tours take the kids into the winelands and teach them about environmental issues and ecosystems. Each child that joins a tour takes home their own scarecrow to put up in their home veggie patch. Moms can join in too.
