Thanks to the grant we received from KGI we were able to purchase an elevated raised bed and add it to our community garden. We are planning to fill the bed and plant summer and fall crops.

Here at the LOCAL Garden in Bath we have had a very successful spring and early summer with many field trips filling the 42 raised beds with potatoes, beets, carrots, greens, peas, tomatoes, sunflowers, sweetpeas, eggplant and peppers!! Many of the children that come to us with their classes have never been to a garden before or worked with their hands in the dirt. Many times over this spring I have heard kids gasps at the sight of a worm and excited follow it through its path. One kindergardener exclaimed "I never knew I could grow my own food!" This is precisely what we try to teach the students that come to visit and it is especially rewarding when coming from a child who has never planted anything before!

The Town & Country Learning Center Community Garden has been thriving! With help from the Sow It Foward Grant, we purchased compost to amend our soil, as well as some much-needed tools to increase our productivity. We now have a happy worm composting project going so that we can hopefully produce our own fertilizer from now on! Additionally, part of the sales from the produce that has been sold at our little farmers market funded a youth trip to a NSBE (National Society for Black Engineers) conference in Anaheim, CA.

The La Plant Grows Its Own Food! project is flourishing! After some rough spring weather (a blizzard on Mother's Day, followed by perpetually cold, frosty weather), things are finally growing! With the generous Sow It Forward Grant, we purchased pepper and tomato plant seedlings as well as additional seeds. The children are actively in the garden each day, tending to their seeds and the new garden bed expansion project! Take a look!
