Stanton Community Garden Welcomes Bryant Elementary Parents for a Garden Workshop!

 

Bryant Elementary School parents and youth are the newest gardeners at the Stanton Community Garden. Sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, CAPOC, in partnership with Kid Healthy, held a bilingual gardening 101 workshop on March 6, 2018 at the garden. Twelve parents of Bryant Elementary School students participated in the workshop and learned the advantages of gardening, what a plant needs in order to grow successfully, the importance of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, as well as the history of the Stanton Community Garden. They decorated plot markers to identify the various salad items they would be planting and Felix Chavarin, community gardener and Group Project Coordinator of the Stanton Community Garden, showed them how to plant! The parents were provided with two plots that they will be maintaining for the next 6 months. All of the parents participated and were very enthusiastic to learn about gardening. A follow up workshop will be conducted in May, which will include a recipe demonstration and incorporate the vegetables the parents are growing. The Stanton Community Garden provides these parents with the space and accessibility to grow nutritious foods at little to no cost!
