Community gardens provide important and valuable benefits for children. Working together with others for a greater good fosters a strong sense of responsibility and enlightenment vital to becoming a productive global citizen and future leader.

Last month, my family was lucky enough to score the last available plot at our local community garden. We consider ourselves gardening newbies, so we are beyond excited for this opportunity to participate in such a wonderful educational and cooperative experience.

We’ve learned so much already, and look forward to gaining and sharing even more gardening wisdom with our fellow members consisting of both new gardeners like ourselves, as well as more skillful, accomplished growers.
