Event Description

Sprouts for Strength - Community Education Garden This team of girls has been achieving their goals by teaching healthy nutrition classes to elementary-age children, helping kids grow their own mini-gardens, growing an impressive garden on Main Street in Brockway, harvesting vegetables, having a stand at the local Farmer's Market, and teaching canning and cooking classes. In June 2014, five girls from Brookville and Brockway came together to identify issues that they cared about in their community and to find a way to make a positive difference. The girls decided to tackle the issue of poor nutritional habits and find a way to promote healthier eating, primarily among families with elementary-age children. The team expanded, research was conducted, community connections were made and by summer 2015, the "Sprouts for Strength" Community Education Garden project was well ahead of schedule. This program will be in the basement social hall of the church. Entry is through the red door at STREET level on West Scribner Ave. A free light supper will be provided.
