Theme Week : Farm 2 Table : Day 1 July 25,2011
On Monday we had to go to the Carousel House to have a work day with Teens 4 Good. Teens 4 Good is an organization that transforms many vacant lots into garden where they produce local, freshly grown food to sell to the community. We helped them weed their garden. I learned that you have to plant beans in a triangle formation, so they can grow correctly. I also thought it was great how these other teenagers like me were working hard and having fun doing it. The reason why Teens 4 Good coincides with the theme for this week is because every week at Carousel House they have a cooking demonstration with the food they grow in the garden.
