This page is dedicated to tips that Amanda and I have come with gardening tips in order to help everyone else succeed in growing a garden. We have also come up with health tips that will benefit other in a positive way as well as providing healthy recipes that we hope you will enjoy! 🙂

Gardening Tip #1

Standard

Beautify vacant lots: We took an empty space of grass and turned it into a small garden.

We did this by…

‣ Raking the grass until only dirt was visible

‣ Removed rocks

‣ Laid down soil and cow manure

‣ Planned where we were going to plant the plants according to the suggested distance apart from each plant

‣ Digged holes for each plant

‣ Placed plants in designated spot

Health Tip #1

Standard

Gardens may offer physical and mental health benefits by providing opportunities to:

• Eat healthy fresh fruits and vegetables: we planted tomatoes, cabbage, cantaloupe, strawberries, & green peppers

• Engage in physical activity, skill building, and creating green space: planting a garden takes hard work and commitment. It is a great way to be active and helping the environments. For this project team-work was very beneficial.

Day 1: Planting Our Garden

Standard

On October 18, we started planted our vegetable and fruit garden. The whole process was a very difficult one. First, we had to dig up the grass using a plow and then raked up all the weeks so it doesn’t interfere with the plants growing. Second, we laid down the cow manure and potting soil and spread it around to nourish the fruits and vegetables while they grow. Lastly, we planted each plant with a specific amount of space between them to be able to grow.

We are very excited to see the progress of our garden! 🙂

Standard
