First Grade Gardening

Heather Gast and Buzz Durham have gardened with children at Grace Covenant Church for about a decade and we decided to bring gardening into her classroom this past year. With a small grant, we set out on a garden adventure with Heather’s eighteen Weaverville First Grade Students. Our objectives were to introduce the students to issues of hunger and what we and others are and can do to ease those pains by growing your own food no matter your age….and to get our hands in the dirt in a way that these kids may not have done before!
