Community Service: School Gardens
Farmer Liz offers her time to some of our local schools by maintaining their school garden programs. She teaches the students the fundamentals of gardening and allows them to not just grown vegetables, but to taste and try new vegetables that they have never been exposed to. She actually goes into the classroom to teach lessons about everything from composting to seasonal availability of vegetables. The children enjoy getting their hands dirty and being a part of their food source!
