Expecting moms want to do all they can to have a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. An important part of promoting good health is taking a look at the way we shop for groceries and the way we eat. The Moms Club of Bristol, Washington County and Johnston Memorial Hospital have put on their garden gloves, loaded up their wheelbarrows and headed to the garden to help expecting women learn more about growing their own food and shopping fresh.
It’s about the whole process from planting your garden, cultivating, harvesting and cooking it up for your family. We want moms to experience the rewards of growing vegetables and fruits too, then integrating them into their daily diet.
This is a garden to demonstrate the various steps and let our moms be a part of the journey from seed to dinner plate. Moms have the opportunity to hear speakers about growing and tending a garden, nutritionists about ways to prepare what they have grown and learn from both novice and experts the secrets to the best tasting veggies. It’s also a chance to pull weeds, water plants and share in the bounty of what we grow.
To learn more about sharing in the Moms Club demonstration Garden please call 276 644-0501 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.Be sure to drive by and take a peek, we are located at the entrance to Lowry Hills on Old Dominion Road, directly across from the DMV and beside Frye- Shaffer Insurance. You can’t miss it! Just look for the pregnant lady in the garden.
