Our goal at the McFaddin-Ward House is to teach how easy gardening can be. We hope to inspire others to start their own gardens, and to instill a love of nature and conservation in the hearts of the children that participate in the program. We adopted a "lasagna" gardening method and maintain the project free of pesticides and chemicals.

The 4-bed Victory Garden, which is part of its education program, is supervised by staffer, Carol Cuccio. She has gardened her whole life has a real passion for teaching others to grow their own fruit, vegetables and herbs.

To learn more, or to get involved with this fulfilling project, contact us at (409) 832-1906 or email ccuccio@mcfaddin-ward.org.

Tom Wright Checks Us Out!

Tom Wright of KFDM aired his third in a series Live at Five Report from our Victory Garden. And how the garden has grown! Education Assistant Carol Cuccio tours Tom and cameraman Kevin Fitch around the garden as helpers do a final weeding before watering. We appreciate Tom's interest.
Tom's next visit: Wednesday, June 17th--be sure to watch!
