Gardens of the Power of Plants Educational Program
Turns out those luffa sponges you buy at the store are actually plants! Plants you can grow right in your own garden. Well, Together We Grow has started doing just that and Luffa With a Cause is now officially a go! The smart and wonderful kids of Carson Elementary have done an excellent job of helping us to grow our Luffa plants in their classrooms. Once ready to harvest, we will be making fun and luxurious soaps with our luffas to be sold at a market near you! All proceeds will go towards the mission of our community gardens and our vision of leaving our community fuller and healthier than we found it. So keep an eye out for our luffa soaps, grown by Newark City School students and made with love the Together We Grow way.
Help us to bring more garden joy to our schools!
Together We Grow has been so blessed to see our gardens expanding into our schools, but were not even close to being done! Our dream is to have a learning garden in every Newark City School. With your help, we could get there! Just $600 would help us to install a brand new learning garden at a new school.
