Garden Club

Mona Bates, neighborhood resident and youth educator, spent the afternoon teaching the garden club at the Haven how to make fresh salsa from garden veggies. They learned the value of good local food and how to put it to use.

In this second clip, the kids explain what their favorite veggies are and why it is important to eat well.

If you are interested in gardening, there are several options. There is the Downtown Garden, you can get in touch with Alecia Kates at the Empowerment Gardens, or there is always your own backyard garden. Also, check out the important issues with local foods going on at Urban Food and for other healthy local options there is always your local Farmer’s Market.
