... Imagine your children coming to your kitchen with veggies freshly harvested from their own garden within just a month or two and enthusiastically doing that throughout the whole growing season!
Food kids gardens, if done right,
You can make it happen with ease while having tons of fun with your family!
I've seen countless families just like yours and mine make it happen. Families with very similar concerns, hopes and dreams!
What I will promise though: this will not take more than 1 hour a week on average. A bit more at the beginning a lot less at the end.
"... oh just enjoying the beauty of it!! The marigolds and everything bloomed beautifully.. even the mint and the oregano... And you see the bees... they now have a place near to come and eat! It's amazing!"
If it wasn't for this class, as much as I wanted to, I would have never been able to build such an amazing vegetable garden for my daughter!
Leila's class got us as a family to grow food and eat healthier together and that was amazing. The best part is that I didn't have to become an expert gardener. I just followed Leila's instructions and that was it!
Thank you Leila for bringing our students such an incredible school garden. This is a great legacy for our students and community.
