Kids gardening fiesta on Thursday

This sounds pretty neat. City Blossoms, a nonprofit that teaches kids about healthy living, the environment, responsibility and different cultures through gardening, is having a fundraiser festival this Thusday from 6 to 8 pm in the 11th and Harvard playground, behind the Carlos Rosario School.

They'll have snacks and music. The Post also has a nice article on the group, and it sounds like a sensible idea: teach kids to garden and they'll care more about what they eat, the Earth, and taking care of things.

The school where I work did a project with them - they're GREAT. I posted photos of Capital City Public Charter School kids in the City Blossoms garden on my blog here: http://wp.me/pKswf-b0

(Capital City PCS is an anchor of the Columbia Heights neighborhood -- here long before the nice apartments and shopping came in. The school will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary in the upcoming school year.)
