Summer Garden Project

The Summer Garden Project is a program sponsored by the Women’s Resource Center and Winona County Master Gardeners, in cooperation with the Redeemer/Land Stewardship Community Garden. Throughout the summer children plant, grow, and harvest vegetables and flowers at the garden. The WRC does this program because we are attempting to counter the violent messages children receive in our world. Children can benefit greatly by learning that touch can be nurturing, helpful, and positive. The touch involved in caring for and helping a living thing to grow can help a child learn this. The Summer Garden Project allows children a safe environment in which to nurture a growing form, to be responsible for its growth, and to learn that gentleness has its own rewards. The program is open to children ages 5-12. Contact the Women’s Resource Center for more information about this fun, interactive program!

"Hosting the tour and the summer garden is a neat way to let the community know about the great partnership we have with master gardeners of Winona," - Diana Miller.
