Fruits & Veggies
Move over produce aisle, community gardens have come to town!
Community gardens are a great way to expand our access to fresh fruit and vegetables. They also offer opportunities for families everywhere to garden, be active through gardening and become exposed to the beautiful things Nevada has to offer. Even if you don’t consider yourself a master gardener, you can harvest your own produce at school, in your backyard or around the community.
Because they benefit the community, are collaborative efforts and incorporate sustainable practices, community gardens are assets that benefit entire neighborhoods, cities and towns. Here are some resources to help you and others in your community create a community garden.
Local Community Gardens
The benefits of school gardens go beyond the classroom! School gardens create a hands-on learning environment where students care for and watch their vegetables grow, plus they have fun eating the fruits of their labor. School gardens offer opportunities for fun and physical activity while serving as an important educational tool to help students understand how healthy food is produced. Are you ready to start your own school garden?
Let’s Move has put together a school garden checklist, which offers important information about how to safely grow fruits and vegetables with your students.
Are you ready to start your own garden in the window sill or your backyard? Involve your whole family in planting a vegetable garden for your home and each step of the way — selecting seeds, tending the garden and enjoying delicious meals around the dinner table — you’ll all have an opportunity to enjoy many memorable moments, while you get moving and eat healthy as a family.
Before you start planting, read the kitchen garden checklist from Let’s Move, which offers important information about how to safely grow fruits and vegetables with your family.
