When Community GroundWorks hosted a garden ninja/fairy activity, children used overgrown collard green leaves to make costumes (wings, skirts, hats) and camouflage themselves in the garden. They loved it, with one young boy saying, “We hit the jackpot on this fieldtrip, this place is awesome!”
The kids also created artworks using garden items. Which prompted a child to say, “This is the best garden ever! It isn’t just a garden, it’s a play garden.”
Community GroundWorks features community gardens, an organic farm, and a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). This nonprofit connects people to nature and local food through hands-on education in gardening, urban farming, healthy eating, and land restoration.
