The Problem

I wish this project inspires local youth to enjoy growing and eating food they grow. I also wish children will enjoy spending time outside in nature with friends.

Our Plan

This project consists of a series of 6 gardening classes throughout the summer where we demonstrate and engage youth ages 2-8 in planting, growing and eating foods such as: peas, carrots strawberries and melons. Each tot receives a 2'x2' area in a community garden plot to plant seeds and harvest their own food. We also have a strawberry patch where tots learn to pick and eat fresh, sweet & juicy strawberries! Each tot starts off the season by painting their name on a brick to mark their spot in the garden. We offer fresh snacks, usually donations from other gardeners, every class. We also have a short story about planting and growing food at the end of each class :)
