Sunshine, bird song, and gentle Spring breezes greeted our first community event in the garden. Welcomed in by members of the Education Committee, children and their parents took a tour, gathered for a story, then planted sunflower, sweet pea, and morning glory seeds.
Margie’s story book described the life of a seed, to prepare the kids for planting. Then, from hand to hand, the seeds were placed in the ground and watered with care.
Young gardeners will get to see plants grow and bloom all season as they play. They will see the cycle of life of the seeds they planted, and they will remember their part in creating a beautiful, flowery landscape for all to enjoy!
