Teaching Tomorrow's Organic Gardeners

Experienced gardeners know that successful gardens  don’t just happen by accident. They’re the result of much hard work, skill and dedication. Many many hours spend weeding, watering, tilling and toiling that ultimately lead to an amazing, bountiful harvest. The incredible reward of all this effort is sometimes hard to put into words, so we encouraged all fifty kids enrolled in Avondale Presbyterian Church’s ReNew summer program to roll up their sleeves, dig in the soil, and experience organic gardening first hand.

The campers learned about the importance of planting in good soil as they each transplanted their own heirloom tomato plant into a larger container. They leaned about what plants need to grow and thrive; what nourishes them, how much sunlight they need, and how and when to water. We can’t say for sure that all fifty kids will grow up to be organic farmers, but we feel certain that everyone went home with a better understanding and appreciation of growing food.

Great idea - so many kids never get the opportunity to see where their food comes from (or at least, where it should come from :) Awesome job!!

Thanks for writing, Kelly. We really enjoyed the oppurtunity to work with the kids at Avondale Presbyterian Church. As you said, we too believe it is important that children have an idea about how the food they eat grows. Also, that they might have consideration for the way it is cared for and how that impacts their bodies as well as the Earth.
Thanks for your feedback and support!
