It’s a great way to teach kids about where their food comes from and encourages trying new fruits and veggies,” says Cynthia Nazario-Leary, the Maui Master Gardener Coordinator. Each participant will have an opportunity to make their own seed pots, plant seeds, learn about the different plants offered, and how to care for their plants at home.
