Take me out to the garden. Take me out to plant seeds, please!
The Garden Project at the Black Mountain Home for Children is in full swing and this year there is a special area for children to plant. In March and April the elementary children planted seeds for the garden in their Sunday School classes. The bean, pumpkin, sunflower, watermelon, and cucumber seeds planted in mid-April should be ready to be transplanted into the garden by mid-May.
Parents are invited to bring their child/children on Saturday, May 12 from 9:00 – 11:00 am to plant the seedlings in the Children’s Garden. This special part of the garden will feature a Sunflower House and Butterfly Garden as well as crops to be planted, tended, and harvested.
All adults, children, and youth are encouraged to come to the garden on any Saturday from 9:00 – 11:00 am. There is always something fun to do in the garden and no experience is necessary. The garden is located in a beautiful setting off old Highway 70 on Lake Eden Road with views of surrounding mountains, the nearby stream with a covered bridge and fountain, and two humble donkeys.
