And, Then There Were Plants. And Kids.

May 20, 2011 Julie

Yesterday, Home Made had a visit from the kids in my mom’s class. This field trip was part of a program called “Cape Kids Care” that’s run out of the Cape May County Special Services Schools. The trip was arranged to fulfill one of their program goals to complete a gardening project.  Working in the Home Made community garden has been just one of several service projects the class has done this school year. They’ve been a busy bunch, spreading good vibes throughout Cape May County!

The kids, joined by some of our community garden members and their teachers (and former teachers), were a hardworking crew who got right to work raking our garden, pulling out weeds, and then planting vegetables.

The sun came out just for us. Mother Nature must’ve known we had a lot of work to do!

Many thanks to Jim from Cape May Organics for hooking us up with some plants and to everyone who came out to garden yesterday–especially the teachers who coordinated the day and, of course, THE fabulous kids Cape Kids Care! I hope to see you all again soon (maybe with a delivery of some fruits–er, veggies–of your labor). (:
