Spring Is Just Around the Corner

Spring is just around the corner and Martha's Table is preparing of another successful year of planting and harvesting. We are also gearing up to teach the children in our programs about the importance of health and nutrition. 

April 10th is our start date for the 2011 Garden Project.  On Sunday, April 10th volunteers from our community will come and help prepare the garden for planting this spring. 

Our new food program manger, Justin Peregoy describes his vision for the 2011 Garden Project. "The garden project is going to focus on education.  The children and teachers in the daycare are going to be more involved this year." 

On April 10th the volunteers will get the garden in shape for the children and teachers in the daycare program to start planting their seedlings.  They will work on projects like; painting the planter boxes bright colors, re-meshing the inside of the planters and taking out all the old soil and replacing it with new soil.

The volunteers and children in the daycare program are very excited to get started on their new projects. 

Martha's Table can not wait to see how the plants will grow into the summer.
