Purpose: This school vegetable garden is located on the Christ Lutheran Day School campus. The Bluebonnet Master Gardeners and the pre-school aged students plant, maintain and harvest the garden together. The students learn to prepare the soil, how to plant, how to properly maintain a vegetable garden and harvest the produce. Master Gardeners know that when kids get their hands in the dirt and participate growing vegetables and watch them grow, they are much more likely to eat vegetables they might otherwise shun.
