Planting the Seeds of Tomorrow

November 23rd, 2010

11-23-10Richard, a gifted educator at The Community Boys and Girls Club in Wilmington NC, is teaching the children at this center about working the earth with their hands. They had just harvested their summer crops and replanted the garden with their winter crop. Richard talks with the children about how many lessons they can learn from growing a garden. He tells them about helping the environment by reducing their dependence on store bought vegetables and by needing to take fewer trips to the grocery store. He wins the students’ respect by imparting lessons the children don’t hear often enough. The children are kept busy at this center with all sorts of activities keeping their minds active and learning about what their interests are at a young age.
Richard isn’t just planting crops with kids; he is planting the seeds for the future of these children.

The most valuable lesson these kids learn is stated on the sticker.
