Chad built small kids planter beds and brought soil and amendments, seeds and expertise (not to mention his kid-winning personality!)...and that's all it took to have our booth surrounded by riveted children all day. After demonstrating seed spacing and planting, each child or family of kids got to choose veggie and herb seeds, and then take home their personal little bed to start their own special garden.
It was amazing to watch how fascinated the children were with all aspects of gardening...from just getting their hands dirty in the soil, to watching for soil enhancing critters, to learning about the nuts and bolt details of tucking the seeds into the ground. The Growing Project is sprouting up little gardeners day by day, kid by kid, seed by seed.
See you in the gardens...and bring your kids; they love it!
