A Garden Experience: In Their Own Words

We decided to get some firsthand information about the garden experience at Our Lady of Mount Carmel from the experts themselves – two members of the Garden Squad!  You can check out this short video to hear them talk about their favorite experiences working in the garden, and what they are most excited about in terms of harvesting the fruits and vegetables they have helped to plant.

Heading into the Fall of 2019 will close out our second year of working with the students at the school, helping to start their school garden and Garden Squad, and hosting cycling safety and riding lessons for students.  We look forward to sharing our garden plans for the Fall and more highlights of programming with the students and their families!
