On Wednesday the Creative Peace Makers summer camp spent the day planting their very own container gardens with BRWIA’s Shannon Carroll and a group of amazing volunteers.
Shannon taught the campers how to create self-watering devices to keep the containers from drying out.
Campers enjoyed exploring the worm bin and learning about vermiculture. They learned about using worm castings and other organic sources of nutrients in their gardens.
The end result was a beautiful container garden for each child to bring home and care for.
Students also tried massaged kale that they seasoned with various ingredients including salt, lemon pepper, parmesan cheese, and even ginger. The verdict……delicious!
