Sadie, age 6, learned about growing plants from a zoom with her 1st grade class during the Spring quarantine. She lives in the city but decided to start a container garden out of an old stationary tub that her older sister painted. She has grown green beans, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and strawberries.

I found a new activity that I absolutely love! I started my own succulent garden, collecting every variety from different neighbors in my community. Its very relaxing and I can be as creative as I want to be. I have also created a beautiful succulent garden out of an old fountain!
