Aim: We would love to develop gardening projects in our community with local children and their families.
What is the Plan? Planting vegetables, herbs and some basic fruits, and teaching the children and their parents how to use these ingredients to make healthy and tasty meals. We also plan to sell the products made with surplus produce.
What difference will it make? Putting good food on a child’s plates can be a bit of a challenge if you are living on a tight budget. We also know that many children do not like eating vegetables and don’t really understand the benefits of healthy eating. In our pilot project we have seen that children are more likely to eat the produce they grow themselves and with a little bit of wizardry in the kitchen we can almost guarantee we will have your children loving vegetables.
What is needed? Funding for seeds and equipment
