Howard University Sponsors Free Gardens for Washington Residents
WASHINGTON (May 14, 2013) -- Join the Howard University My Garden Project,
a free program sponsored by Howard University College of Medicine, Howard
University Hospital and the Doctors of Howard University for Washington families
with elementary school children designed to teach children about the importance
of healthy eating and the joy of watching fruits and vegetables grow.
Howard University physicians will plant a free garden at your home or apartment
that will then be tended by your child. The gardens, made up of tomatoes,
squash, cucumbers or other vegetables, are largely self-sufficient. They primarily
only need watering during particularly long periods of drought.
Our physicians, along with our special gardener, will stop in periodically
to help with the garden.
To sign up for a free garden, please email Lindsay Conn at Lindsay.firstname.lastname@example.org
or Ron Harris at email@example.com
or call 202.683.0182.
