Bucket Garden Project
An event we enjoy doing is our 5 gallon garden bucket project. In 2016, more than 100 mostly inner city children took part in creating their very own garden. The children learned about eating healthy to planting and taking care of their very own vegetable plants. Each one took home their bucket with plants to take care and raise their favorite veggies.
More than 30 children and several staff took part in the LVBG Health & Wellness Bucket Garden Project for inner city families. On Saturday August 20th, 2016, members took part in developing a garden at the Salvation Army in center city Allentown. They planted pumpkin seeds, strawberry plants, green beans, lettuce and mums..... The kids can keep an eye out for the beans, and pumpkin to grow!
