Why Do You Like The Garden?




In addition to our normal gardening routine, we took a second out to say why we love the garden.

"I love the garden because I get to get dirty!"

"I like going to the garden because I like planting."

Weeding, Watering, and Mulching: Oh My!

Jun 20


This week is busy with checking the garden and seeing its progress. We learned about turnips today. Many children from the YMCA program tasted a fresh turnip for the first time!  Our young learners also helped create the labels that we will put in the Teaching Garden.

Gardening and Smoothies 

Jun 13

Even though the day was very hot, we got so much done at our Community Garden! We planted peanuts, pumpkins, starting cutting popcorn and so much more! Our group of kids did a fabulous job! And we ended the day with some very hard work on our Fit-2-Serve garden from our afternoon group and nice refreshing smoothies with fruit and even some vegetables!
