Martha's Table's School Yard Garden
This past week Martha's Table volunteers and kids have been hard at work making sure our school yard garden is under way for this years harvest season. Volunteers made sure all of the garden plots are put together with care. After all, these gardens will help feed the children in our programs well as folks that receive food from our mobile soup kitchen, McKenna's Wagon.
The best part is that the kids from our daycare program got their hands dirty. Children from our pre-school classrooms helped our volunteer and garden engineer, Bobby, plant:
- Marigolds - they act as a natural bug repelant
- Tomato vines
- Russian kale
- Red bell peppers
- and the very speical bean sprouts that started as seeds and planted in plastic cups by the children in our pre-school (please see previous post in May, Planting Seeds!)
Enjoy the photos and feel free to stop by anytime to see the garden in the Martha's Table school yard.
