Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club kids prepare the Garden for Spring!
The weather has been beautiful and Spring is on it’s way. What better way to embrace the sun than to get to gardening?! On Thursday, March 4th Mount Vernon Club kids donned their gardening gloves and began preparing the Club Garden beds for Spring.
With this warm, dry weather, it was a perfect day for kids to pull out weeds and loosen up the soil for Spring planting. Some of the favorites to be planted this year will include peas, lettuce, carrots, and herbs. As part of the Club’s emphasis on Healthy Lifestyles Club kids will have the opportunity to help plant, tend, grow, and eat their garden over this coming Spring and Summer.
