Bohemian Bounty teamed up with Edible San Marcos to host a seed starting workshop for the children who live at the C.M. Allen Housing Authority Neighborhood. The workshop began with leading questions to the young audience like, “What kind of vegetables to you like?” and “What kind of vegetable do you want to grow?” Furrow young brows looked at Audra and Suzi but by the end of the session, the kids were enthusiastically clutching their potted seeds. Like experts they were quickly lining up the number and variety of species planted and saying loudly to us -“I want to plant Kale.”
These kids probably never ate Kale before and we will let you know how popular it is after they taste it. Meanwhile, we are preparing for our next garden work day, April 4, 2009- fencing in the garden area for C.M. Allen. The garden will measure 30 feet deep by 60 feet long. It will be situated to the right of the K.A.D. (Kids Against Drugs) Store where the youth of the housing projects go to use computers, purchase snacks and meet for activities.
Edible San Marcos is still looking for donations for this project: fencing material, mulch, compost, organic garden products, seeds, and especially volunteers. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
