East Union Early Childhood Center

Our program received a Farm to ECC grant. We were able to purchase raised beds, plants, seeds, soil, and gardening equipment to add to our Nature Explore classroom.

The summer school age students put the raised beds together. The preschoolers planted, watered, harvested, and tasted the produce they raised! Our nutrition aide helped the children make salsa and spaghetti sauce with their vegetables. There was extra produce for children to take home for their families as well. This was such a valuable addition for experience based learning for our children here at the East Union Early Childhood Center!
