Little Green Thumbs Project

First meeting June 17th at 6.00 pm at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute

Are you a parent who likes to garden? Would you like your children to join you in the garden?

The Little Green Thumbs Project makes this possible.

Michael Fields Agricultural Institute is offering families of East Troy an opportunity to spend time together in the garden and strengthen the family bond while enjoying the bounty of their labor.

Are you afraid that maintaining a garden will take too much time? Well we have thought of that too… We are having a square foot garden this year. What is square foot garden you ask? It is a small plot of land each family cares for, each family grows something different but we share the harvest equally.

Our proposed theme this year will be a Spaghetti Garden. No we are not growing spaghetti, but we will be growing all the ingredients to make an awesome organic sauce! We are only asking for help in the garden one-day a week for about an hour. You will be spending time with your family, Michael Fields staff as well as Master Gardeners who will be able to answer any question you may have.

This is a free opportunity. Our main donor of seeds and seedlings this year is Home Depot. Thank you!
