Our Outdoor Pantry
A garden project is an ideal vehicle to teach environmental awareness through the workings of nature, to build responsibility and work ethic through plant care, and to build self-esteem through accomplishment and acquisition of knowledge. Additional benefits are found in enhanced health, both physical and mental – through physical exercise and activity in the outdoors. Increased awareness comes from understanding the benefits of eating healthy foods that are naturally grown. Participants will have the added incentive to eat and enjoy the vegetables they have raised and share with our farm animals.
