Tiny Gardners

This morning we had the opportunity to visit the Judson YMCA's pre-school program and teach them about nutrition, gardening and worm composting. They were full of energy, eager to learn and incredibly cute. Below shows what fun they had learning about how certain fruits and vegetables help the body part they resemble (with hospital dietitians, Susan Hubbard and Meagan Kennedy) . They had a yummy snack of grapes, celery and cherry tomatoes (aka "ketchup berries"). They also got to plant their own vegetables, visit the worm compost site at St. Francis, and peruse through our community garden. It was a fun morning!
