Build, Plant, Grow, Eat, Repeat Garden
Youth participants will do just about everything for this garden at the Early Childhood Center in Manning, South Carolina. The only thing teachers will do is plan the timeline and facilitate the phases of planting through harvest. One class has already started to pull weeds to prepare the gardening area. Students will learn to cultivate a positive environment from building, planting, and caring for a living, breathing garden. In the end, the students will concoct a salad made from the vegetables they grew and share with as many people in the school as possible. Students will use and learn real life skill, along with cross curricular material.
