A Gift Of Gardening Experience

 These were grown in Orange County New York.  However kids in Junior High and High School in Texas will not be able to complete their garden that started growing.  Thanks to Donors Choose program a lot of kids throughout the United States are able to work at projects or receive necessary equipment their school would not be able to provide. This year in spite of getting help, from Donors Choose Program, Texas kids are not able to enjoy the harvest of their hard work. Please help if you can. I am sure they will appreciate a lot.

Here is the link if you would like to help.

Hi Munir .. we should support all kids' gardening programmes - they open up all kinds of interesting subjects to learn about ... I hope the Texas kids get to garden this coming year - Hilary

I hadn't heard about this program before. When we moved to Iowa putting in a garden was high on our list. We let our daughter choose a lot of what we will grow each year. There's something special about being able to provide for yourself.

I didn't know a program like this existed. Thanks for sharing the information about it. We put in a garden each year and experience the joys and the many frustrations of getting a harvest. What a great way to also teach that you reap what you sow...and how to help yourself and others.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am slowly working my to visiting all my blogger friends after this summer without a computer. Growing a garden is a sure way of starting kids on the right track as far as food goes so that's too bad it wasn't enough in Texas.

Munir: I had never heard of this program. Wow! Can you tell me why the children in Texas won't be envolved? Did I miss something? Did I miss a post?

I love fresh garden grown tomatoes on my turkey burger.

What a shame those kids can't participate. It's thrilling to watch something we planted grow before our very eyes, whether we're kids or adults.

Thanks for the link. Kids really do benefit from seeing the fruits of their labor!

Hi Munir: Thanks for stopping by the other day. I'm glad you cleared things up for me. LOL's. I thought I had missed one of your postings.

So if I wanted to contribute to such a program how would I go about doing so? How much monies will I need to give? When is the deadline for donations? Just give me the details my friend. I'm not sure if I can donate this year, but I will see what I can do next year. I really try to help others as I am being blessed, but as you know there are so many needs and so little people helping.
