Did You Know . . .

April is the national garden month and several schools have taken advantage of getting their hands dirty. The Healthy Eating and Active Living Liaison was awarded a grant from Cliffdale garden Action for Healthy Kids to promote nutrition and physical activity initiatives within the schools. After partnering with Jason Weathington, Horticulture Agent from NC State University, the planting began. Check out the gardens at Beaver Dam Elementary, Cliffdale Elementary, and C. Wayne Collier Elementary schools. If your school has a garden, share your experience with us. Please send photos to Angela Hurley, Healthy Eating and Active Living Liaison at angelahurley@ccs.k12.nc.us.
