Meet microgrant recipient Abbigail (11) from West Virginia. For her project, she led a team of other students in an after-school program as they built & tended to a garden at the Wade Center. Together they 1) prepared the soil & raised beds, 2) planted seeds, 3) weeded, watered & cared for the plants, and 4) harvested & distributed their produce to families. All students were given gardening gloves and a paperback copy of Up in the Garden & Down in the Dirt to reinforce learning how to care for the plants & produce in the Wade Center garden.
