|Cedar Grove Elem. salad harvest|
One project that I was fortunate enough to see the end result of was the Salad Science program initiated by Audubon GreenKids. This program introduced elementary school students at seven schools to the science of growing their own food, using seeds for salad mix donated by Grow It Eat It. Funded by a grant from TogetherGreen, GreenKids staff members Diane Lill and Jenny Brown (Jenny is also a UME Master Gardener) provided the teachers with the materials they needed to complete the program, managed planting days and answered questions along the way (with help from MGs).
