FREE Children's Garden Workshop THIS SATURDAY!

From Beaches Local Food Network Newsletter (click here for the newsletter).

"We believe that getting children in the garden is one of the most important things we can do, both for them and for ourselves. Kids are much more enthusiastic about eating fresh, healthy foods when they pull them right out of the ground... I've seen it over and over again! They also have the opportunity to learn about life cycles of plants and insects, how a seed can produce food, and how hard work is rewarded when you harvest the fruits of your labor. In addition, some may find a lifelong joy and fulfillment from gardening, much like many people I know who started at a young age. We also need a future generation of people who will be growing our food in a responsible manner... enjoying living the farm life and protecting the soils and waters that sustain us.

This Saturday's Event:  Planting the keyhole beds with fall & winter vegetables!

When:  9-10 AM

Where:  Beaches Organic Community Garden, Jarboe Park, 301 Florida Blvd Neptune Beach, FL 32266

What to Bring:  Most importantly, a good attitude and enthusiasm!  Also be prepared with sunscreen, a hat and bug repellant as you see fit."
