We had a fairly good turn out for our first group meeting last Thursday March 8th.
We met and discussed the Grow Appalachia Contracts and to get to know each other a little bit. better. Everyone seemed to have a good time sharing gardening tips, discussing the weather and eating cake.

On March 13th , Kristin Smith from the Whitley County Extension Office visited H.S.
She presented two classes, one for the adult G.A. participants ( Raised Bed Gardening) and one for the
children in the After school program at the Youth Center.
Kristin, teaching a Beginning Gardening Class at the Henderson Settlement Youth Center

The children have agreed to have their garden plan ready next Thursday, they have elected a Gardening committee to design and plan the Raised Bed Garden . I  can’t wait to see the plan for their garden.
