He volunteered to come teach us how to grow our own garden.
Since we had this great opportunity, I thought it would be perfect to have the girls work on the Eating for Beauty Badge.
Since we are going to be going DC this year it will be fun to see the garden that the President has had planted at the White House.
We headed outside so the girls could actually get their hands dirty and learn while doing, which is always more fun then learning from books alone.
They learned about the different type of soils and which kind is better to plant in.
They racked everything out smoothly.
They learned the proper way to get plants out of the pots without hurting them.
They planted herbs (rosemary and peppermint).
They also planted Brussels sprouts, red chard and lettuce.
They learned how to read the plants and bulbs to see how far apart they needed to be planted and how much sun was needed.
Each meeting we will go out and check on everything and make sure it's all growing well. Soon everyone will be able to harvest what was planted.
Good food, helps keep bodies healthy and a healthy body is a beautiful body!
Thank you Nick for a great and very informative meeting!
