Our Unity Garden is alive and well thanks to dedicated students from Nuner Primary Center in South Bend! These high achieving student council members are 2nd through 4th grade students with a knack for making small things grow! With the help and expertise from Sara and Mitch, our friendly Unity Garden helpers, they planted many little seeds in April. As the baby plants got bigger and bigger, excitement grew for the day we could finally give them a forever home at the Kroc Center.
Today finally arrived, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! 21 eager gardeners were ready to turn the dirt into living soil. It was a joyful experience to watch everyone cooperate, have fun, and get dirty! Even better, these kids helped create a sustainable dietary option for neighborhood residents-community gardens are a great way to provide extra veggies during the summer!
- Squash & Zucchini
- Red Lettuce
- Swiss Chard
- Sweet Peppers
- Mystery Veggies (where did the labels go?!)
Thank goodness for Dominoes, who donated several pizzas to our cause!
And the Kroc Lifeguards, who let us cool off in the pool after all that hard work!
The next time you are at the Kroc Center, don’t forget to stop by the garden and show our seedlings a little love!
