Learning about community sustainability

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Some Wabash Valley kids spent a part of their day learning about community sustainability.

The Terre Haute Children’s Museum held their “Day at the Garden” event Saturday.

It took place at Indiana State University’s (ISU) Community Garden.

Kids learned how to grow food at home, discover edible, outdoor plants and learned to compost food and yard waste.

Officials say its important children learn these things at an early age.

“I had my children in the garden from the time they could walk and they garden now and they’re in their 30’s. So it’s just nice to be able to get them out early and let them have some fun,” said Patti Weaver, ISU community garden.

The ISU Community Garden offers plots of land – free of charge to expert or new gardeners in the area.
