Outreach Spotlight: Seasonal Planting at Springdale Park

We had a great time planting a seasonal garden with the students at Springdale Park Elementary. We planted sugar snap peas, cauliflower, broccoli, chard, and varieties of kale – all seedlings from our partners at the Wylde Center. We can’t wait to taste all of our yummy crops!

We’re looking forward to seeing all of the Springdale Park students out at the Ponce City Farmers Market to taste other locally-grown seasonal crops, fruits and berries, and foraged goods.
