Parent/Child Incorporated (PCI) Community Build Day was a success at Fenfield Environmental Resource Center thanks to our community partners: Scotts Miracle-Gro team, PCI Staff, parents, and volunteers. We are so grateful to all of our volunteers who made our Community Build Day event so successful. Special thanks to Scotts Miracle-Gro team, who worked diligently with our children and parents in many cases planting their first vegetable plant. Scotts Miracle-Gro team even went a step further by providing every child with a vegetable plant. Thank You! The Community Build Day kicked off with a welcome by Parent/Child Incorporated STEAM Coordinator Lisa Walker and Scotts Miracle-Gro Aaron Fuentes leading the charge by officially kicking off PCI's Harmony Children's Learning Garden. The children loved getting their hands dirty and garden activities. It was warm outside but that did not stop PCI's Human Resource Director Diana Vogt from dressing up like a Pea. The attendees enjoyed fresh fruit dishes and a free T-shirt and books for the children. Special thanks to Ms. Vanessa Estrada, Research Program Coordinator for the University of Texas at San Antonio Miranos Program for volunteering. A big thanks to Mrs. Pamela Ray for assisting with photography. The top planting picks for the Harmony Children's Learning Garden include tomatoes, basil, cilantro, beans, squash, and cucumbers. If you haven't heard, Parent/Child Incorporated received a garden grant. The garden grant is part of  the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation, and National Head Start Association’s Gro More Garden Grants initiative, which seeks to connect one million Head Start children across the country to garden education and fresh food. I am confident that today's Community Build Day is a big step in making a difference in the lives of children and families when it comes to healthy food choices and garden education.Thank you once again! #GroMoreGood
