Today is National Plant a Flower Day! This day kicks off the start of Spring and represents the transition to a new season! For many people young and mature, planting flowers and gardening is an amazing outlet that allows you to participate in the growth process of a living organism, often times resulting in home grown food! We at the Partnership feel this is a great activity to do with your children, teaching them the power of self- reliance and cultivating life within their hands!
Durham’s Partnership for Children, along with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, Farmer Foodshare, Kiddie Kollege, and Durham Innovative Nutrition Education (DINE) program, came together to be part of the 2020 NC Farm to Early Care and Education Collaborative. We joined a professional development hub of 14 other North Carolina teams also passionate about connecting food and childhood systems. For more information on the Farm to ECE Program contact our Community Initiatives Coordinator Katie Starr.
