Lettuce Grow A Salad Garden
Thank you to San Bernardino County Master Gardener Janeen Williams for this fun and educational experience for children.
In our one-hour activity, children were able to learn about composting and how to plant, grow, care for, and reap the benefits of a garden from home. Each mini gardener was provided their own kit to plant peas, spinach, radishes, and lettuce, along with an yellow grape tomato plant.
Thanks to Upland Public Works Solid Waste and Food Recycling Program, Recreation staff members were also able to join in on the planting fun with their own garden. If you’re in the area, stop by and see what veggies we have growing on site!
