Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Today we discussed organic, edible gardening. The lesson was followed by a “Seeds To Plant” gardening activity at the library (facilitated by the local 4H program). The main idea was to show kids the benefits of edible gardening and how easy it is to do at home. The presentation supported much of the lesson I had done with him earlier in the day, which was great for retention. Kids were encouraged to make their own containers to take home – my son planted lettuce and Swiss chard seeds, which we look forward to enjoying when they mature. It was a fun day!
Two weeks later – we see signs of growth! 🙂
A Month Later:
6 weeks later we have our first sampling of lettuce…good enough for a superhero!
