If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then the DCCDA can provide garden-starter kits to begin or further develop four children's learning gardens, either at childcare centers or for in-home childcare providers.
The organization's Families, Farmers and Educators United for Healthy Child Development (FFEU) project works to educate the community about nutrition and create sustainable food resources to improve children's access to healthful meals at childcare centers. Last year, FFEU established 13 gardens in the yards of in-home childcare providers, along with three more at childcare centers. Gardening was incorporated into the children's daily routines, and the kids were more likely to try vegetables that they had helped to grow themselves. Additionally, children learn firsthand about gardening and food through food-based education activities. The project has signed on five additional childcare centers and six more in-home care providers interested in starting or improving gardens and participating in FFEU's food-education curriculum this year.
Each garden-starter kit contains a shovel (a $25 value), rake (a $15 value), 75-foot hose (a $35 value), children's hand tools (a $15 value), and seeds (a $10 value). Each additional $100 raised will be used to purchase another garden-starter kit.
You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
As the local affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, DCCDA serves as a membership organization and multiservice agency dedicated to the well-being of families and children. Along with providing financial assistance for low-income or at-risk families seeking childcare, the DCCDA runs a federal food program that provides nutritious meals and snacks to adults and children receiving daycare and an early-childhood mental-health-consultation program.
The organization continues its commitment to children's development and eating habits through its Families, Farmers and Educators United for Healthy Child Development (FFEU) project, which incorporates gardening and food education into children's daily routines.
