Tour of Spring

Front yard gardens, school gardens, community gardens, church gardens, workshops and iGrow Buckets... it all happens at once in the spring time.  Below is a sampling of what's been keeping Wendell and I busy the past several weeks.

Fresh for Florida Kids Dept of Ag and Consumer Services (Holland Building) Garden
(which is going to serve as the set for You Tube Food Garden Education clips to be shared state-wide with students and teachers as part of the DOA's new Farm to School program).



Seminole Montessori Preschool Garden
(Lots of fun working with parents and children throughout the day.)



Faith Presbyterian Church Garden
(Kids grow food to give away through Manna on Meridian food pantry. Also the location for workshops that we offer on distribution Saturdays with folks coming to get food.)


Whole Child Leon/ Wesson VPK Garden -- TD article
(Engaging kids in the 95210; encouraging children to get their five fruits and veggies every day.)



Dena and Jenna's Garden
(Jenna's a pro.  I showed her once, and from there she had the knack.)


The Space at Feather Oaks Food Garden
(Eight family plots.  We have a workshop at the start of each season.)



iGrow Bucket Building Workshop at New Leaf

Esposito Workshop Garden

Like I said, a sampling.  Spring is always a whirlwind of planning, planting, teaching, and supporting new growers.

And lest I forget, we keep getting press here and there.  Much thanks to all those who have offered me and others amidst the Tallahassee Food Network a chance to share our story:
