La Conner Builds a Club Garden

Last week, Members helped volunteer Greg Ellis in finishing up the first stage of the new Club garden. Members took turns filling the custom-made raised beds with soil and planting peas. In the coming months, they will learn how to incorporate permaculture and vermiculture, and have fun in the sun at the same time.

The Positive Sprouts program focuses on combating the growing obesity crisis among America’s youth by educating young people on the importance of eating nutritious foods and living healthy by building and maintaining community gardens.

 Positive Sprouts takes place every Monday and Friday from 3:30pm – 4:35pm.
