Welcome!

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.

2010 Green Thumbs Program Takes Root!

A lot of joy, greenery, and snacking facts were spread around in yesterday's Green Thumbs Program. Started off with a fun book about garden vegetables, and then on to hands-on activities. The children planted peas in recyclable containers to take home and watch their pea-plants grow. They also learned about the rainbow color of foods and which vegetables are good for what parts of the body. For extra attention, they saw how a compost is made and why. Then a stop by the vegetable beds for a sniffing--that is to smell how wonderful fresh herbs smell.  Can't wait for next month's program. Sign up now, as space is limited and the cutoff for registration is two days before (we need time to buy food and prep the garden activities).
