Children gathered at the gardeners hangout to plant some beans that had been soaking over night. Its not really the right time of year to plant beans but with our crazy weather and weird start of seasons we thought we take a chance. Each child planted a bean and labelled each bean with their name so that when they visit the garden at Clinton Park, they can care for their plant on their own on the days the Gardeners Hangout is not there….all it needs is a cup of water. However the kale and herbs are growing nicely:) Can’t wait to see what happened since we planted last Wednesday!
Oh! Did I mention we waved an imaginary magic wand and sung “Abracadabra, bibbity bobbity boo, make these beans grow big and tall for me and you!
No doubt they will really grow now! See you tomorrow!

Kevin Saffar rapped about community connections, keeping the love and our respondibility to help eachother and make a difference. He was awesome and his words really resonated with the youth. The best part was he managed to pull that all tgether in a few hours. Talk about passion and inspiration not only were we delighted, Kevin was extactic to provide!
