Watch Our Garden Grow!

June 21, 2010

As the temperature heats up, so is our summer program here at New Community for Children!  This summer, 95 youth aged 5-13 will be cultivating their green thumb at our 6-week summer camp, Our Garden, Our Community.   Each week, youth will be exploring questions like:

  • Where does our food come from and how does it grow?
  • What do different plants and flowers look like and why?
  • What are the parts involved in a garden ecosytem?
  • How can we take better care of our environment and why is that important?

In addition, our youth will be planting, tending, and harvesting, and cooking with vegetables, fruits and herbs from our on-site community garden.

Follow this blog to watch our garden grow!  Find out what our kids are up to in garden, and what produce is ripe for harvest and eating.
