About this Exploration:

The garden started as a dream for healthy food for people in the community. A place to enjoy the sunshine and friendship of others while working in the garden.
Creating memories for children of the joys of gardening. The joy of eating fresh organic produce right out of the garden.

The Children's Garden area was developed for children to use to plant their own garden area. Five elementary children took advantage of this garden option and had a great time learning to garden. Heidi and Bethany took their produce to the local Farmer's Market and learned how hard work produced an income for them. The girls made $25.00 off of their produce in two weeks.
