BURLINGTON, KY (FOX19) - The steps on how to grow your own community garden is being taught to preschoolers at the R.C. Durr YMCA in Burlington.
The young gardeners have the opportunity to take the fruits and vegetables home to their families or to share it with community members.
The learning garden project began in the spring of 2012 with a grant from Chipotle. The funding provided the program with all the basic materials needed to develop a garden site, including a rail fence, flower boxes, soil, seeds, and shovels.
YMCA staff, along with senior volunteers, monitors and teach the kids how to maintain the garden throughout the year.
