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.

Last Visit from Tom Wright of KFDM TV

On Wednesday, June 17, Tom Wright made his fourth and final visit to our Victory Garden. He interviewed Carol Cuccio and she was able to show him how well the four-bed garden has grown.

We can harvest many of the herbs and several of the vegetables (crowder peas, tomatoes, and cucumbers to name just a few). Michelle Cate took photos of the garden for you to see on our Facebook page. The Sunflowers look magnificient.

Come by to see the garden--as we work hard to keep it cool in this 100+degree heat.
