Babes in Garden-Land

"If we can impact just one young person then we have done well on this Earth."

Quote from an HOH Master Gardener

On Tuesday, young volunteer gardeners helped the Harvest of Hope Garden by landscaping some of the perimeter of the garden.

Leigh (9), bottom right of photo, said, "I loved planting the the Flowering Quince Shrubs and [was so inspired by their beauty] would love to paint that someday."

"You Step around the plants like this after planting them.  Fun!!"

Laying out and spacing of Boxwood Shrubs, etc.
Brooke, age 11:  "It's interesting how you break up the soil around the root to loosen it up before planting into ground."

Kate, age 13, said of all the things that she got to do, " favorite part was the placing of plants into the ground. It made me feel that the void in the ground was now filled with earthly goodness!"

Plant flowers in others' gardens and your life becomes a bouquet!  ~Author Unknown
