A Special Visit from Gardening Friends!

7 Mar

Look who dropped by the AHA National Center today! We love to have visitors, but these 2nd graders from Moss Haven Elementary didn’t just come to chat, they came bearing gifts and surprised us with a special donation to Teaching Gardens!

These kiddos are gardening pros and use their American Heart Association sponsored Teaching Garden all the time. They’ve learned about nature, fruits, veggies, flowers, and the importance of eating balanced nutrition from garden based lessons.

They told us they love their school garden and think it’s fun to raise their own fruits and veggies. Which is why they decided to give back and raise money for the Teaching Gardens program. They asked their friends and family for help and even raised tips by doing cart-wheels for their neighbors! All together they raised over $150 for Teaching Gardens.

Vice President Laura Sol greeted the girls and thanked them for their wonderful donation!

We’re so grateful to these young volunteers and are so happy to see them blossoming into thoughtful young ladies!
