What’s growing in the Fit4Kids spring garden?

Spring is here! Fit4Kids garden lessons in elementary schools and after-school clubs are back in session at 26 sites! Students have been busy pulling out old plants from last season and planting our cool-season crops such as broccoli, cabbage, kale, and lettuce!

Our interns, community members, and staff have been hard at work seeding and transplanting for the last several weeks. And the fun is only just beginning! Our cool weather seedlings have started going out to school gardens, community organizations, and stores (Ellwood Thompson’s and Sneed’s) to be planted!

Our next steps in our spring work will be to continue to pot up our seedlings and clean up our school gardens for spring planting. If you are interested in helping at your neighborhood school’s garden, or at one of our volunteer event days, please feel free to get in touch with us! Whatever your level of experience, getting involved in our community’s gardens is a great way to help out. Just send an email to info@grfit4kids.org 

Thanks to Anthem for the support!
