We Grow Young Gardeners

— Written By

Our Durham County 4-H program provided ‘Victory Garden’ kits to youth to help them start their own vegetable gardens at home this summer and fall. We distributed 90 summer kits and an additional 80 fall plants so families could continue their gardening with lettuce, kale, collard greens, and broccoli. Since then, we’ve heard from kids from across Durham who shared their excitement and joy at being able to watch their tomatoes, peppers, and basil flourish at home. Here’s a note from one 4th grader, Hazel who grew a bumper crop this summer!
