Working with children on growing food indoors is one of THE BEST parts of my business! Besides the gift of interaction with such bright curiosity and unquestioned optimism, I receive the wisdom of youth – an unfiltered generosity and engagement for which I am forever grateful. Here is an update from one of the young women I’ve been working with at the Salisbury Public Library…
“This week at the Tower Garden we came in to find the tiny sprouts. We made a graph for how long the sprouts are each week and how long it takes them to grow. As we were doing that, we got to eat some delicious plants, such as Chinese Cabbage and Black Magic Dino Kale, which were both very tasty. After that, we read a book that taught us all about how we can make the world a better place. It taught us about how just planting one plant can make the world very special. I enjoyed it very much and hope to read other books just like that with my friends. I can’t wait to see what we will do next time at the library.”
