Growing Young Gardeners - Heavy Harvest





The Growing Young Gardeners Club met for the twelfth session at Wheeler Park on 1100 Dorset Street in South Burlington, Vermont on August 29, 2015. 

Today's session was like a summer Easter egg hunt, only for ripe vegetables. 


The Growing Young Gardeners Club is 
collaboration with the Machia Wilderness Camp
and the Burlington Garden Club












































































Hey, you have a spider on your shirt. 





































After eleven weeks of gardening, 
these young gardeners 
have a few stories to tell. 

                                         
And some of the stories
 are quite funny. 




There is great joy to be had 
in transferring knowledge, 
in sharing new discoveries,
in working hard, than reaping
the rewards of that hard work -
together. 
















Faith, determination, perseverance 
and nurturing to others, 
these are the qualities 
of a growing young gardeners 
teacher.









Who doesn't like vegetables?









Sure I will try a string bean-
hey you never know I might like'em.

Sunshine and Smiles 
help the garden 
and the young gardeners
grow.







Encouragement builds confidence.
Humor makes it a joy to try.
