Another of my friends, Paige, has organized & created a school/community garden for one of Raleigh’s local elementary schools. I love the idea of a school garden and teaching children about growing their own foods. We get our vegetables from our garden, my parent’s garden, our CSA and the Farmer’s Market. My daughter tends to her own small herb garden and is so enthusiastic about adding all that we’ve collected to our nightly cooked meal. Having a close proximity to the garden has certainly affected her eating habits and I’d like to think it might do the same for other kids.
You can find out more details and sign up to volunteer at this community/school garden in Raleigh, NC via her website here.
