Vegetable Garden

Windamere Park / Programs / Vegetable Garden

The clients went shopping for seedlings, and prepared the garden beds.

They then planted seedlings in the vegetable patch and are caring for them and watching them grow. When the vegetables are ready to pick the clients then have the opportunity to eat them or cook them.

The whole process teaches clients to identify plants. What is considered weeds, the different growth stages of plants and when a vegetable is ready for harvesting? During the program each client’s skill level was observed with the following results.






Push a wheelbarrow




Pull a weed




Use a shovel/pitch fork




Plant a seedling




Water with a hose




Use a watering can
