Participants for this program were selected directly from the Gilpin community and they are part of our Mommies, Bellies, Babies & Daddies program. There were three mothers and one father as well as their children who participated in the hands on training and zoom instruction.
By the end of the program, participants had a much better knowledge of and interest in gardening, nutrition, composting and some aspects of the business of agriculture. Each participant planted their own tomato plant and are currently developing it and watching it grow. They have been provided all the tools necessary to care for this plant from garden to table. They will continue to care for the green space in Gilpin and have a made a commitment to do so.
