June 13, 2014: Delray Beach will soon sprout two new gardens for kids to learn how to harvest locally grown produce. The green additions are part of the local nonprofit Sow Share program, which aims to get the community involved in. Now there will be two gardens geared toward teaching kids about nature. One will be at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, the other on a patch of vacant land on Northwest First Street and Northwest Ninth Avenue.
“We are going to try and share with them some of the values that come from working with the land,” said Pablo del Real, who started Sow Share. “We want to teach them about the inter-connectedness of all life.” I have always been active with kids,” he said. “This is what I wanted to do with these lots.”
The story is the same for the folks at St. Paul’s. It is all about teaching kids the importance of the environment.Adding a garden focused on educating kids fit right in the mission the congregation’s green team had in mind. “St. Paul’s has a really significant commitment to the environment,” said Rev. Kathleen Gannon. “We have phenomenal trees and green lush around us. We want the children to understand how wonderful the earth is.” Click here to read the Sun Sentinel article
