Saturday, 11 EcoKids planted their gardens. No moaning, or "can we go?", yet. They just got right to work for two hours. Lots of adult volunteer/mentors showed up including two city council persons and the neighborhood president. We also invited a TV and a newspaper reporter to let others know.
This week I am doing make-ups with the kids that missed one or the other earlier sessions. I have 16 kids signed up so far of the 20 that I can accommodate.
These are good kids and I think they are going to understand the power and wonder of community sharing. I am VERY pleased with the first two meetings with the EcoKids.
