The vegetable garden at Upbring New Life Children’s Center – still in its early stages – already has mint, basil, dill, rosemary, eggplant, cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, okra, cantaloupe, artichokes, zinnias and sunflowers planted! With all the rain in Central Texas, everything is coming up green and gorgeous.
Christine Kline, New Life’s “gardener extraordinaire”, is working alongside some of the girls in a raised bed garden – demonstrating how it’s done while cultivating their gardening knowledge.
“We are just getting started on our garden project,” said Christine. “Our goal is to create an efficient means of producing food that will not only benefit the campus diet but will empower the kids by teaching them how to appreciate and ethically produce their own healthy food.”
With harvest time not that far away, they’ve promised to take more photos as we all watch the garden grow.
