With the first day of school fast approaching, our children’s drop-in gardening program is coming to a close. Let’s take a quick look at some of the exciting things we’ve learned this summer!

We grew a lot of yummy fruits and vegetables! We learned how to sow the seeds, water our plants, and harvest our crops.
