Qs From The Jamba Juice/National Gardening Association End Of Project Survey

2 Aug

Please start thinking about these questions from the Jamba Juice Award End of Program survey.   I’ll write the essay, but it really helps to have quotes from kids.  Ask the kids and fellow participants about what they like about the garden, how having the garden changed their spring and summer routines, what they would say about their garden in show n tell, etc.

Photos are needed, too.  I’ll bring a release to pizza night sometime soon.  Give me a heads up if you don’t think you’ll want your or your child’s image included.  Thanks!  -Denise
