growing together

One of the best things about Germination Corps is that it teaches kids and adults to learn to care for plants through the individual attachment that each has to their own plant backpack. It also creates community through the workshops and plant parades and walking garden events. This will be exciting to see happen in North Carolina, a smaller community than Philadelphia, but perhaps far more organized already. Keep spreading the word, people!

This tree was in Kensington, Philadelphia. Most places on this block were brown, and had seen more care.

Places like this are good for resting a mobile garden to add some life and color to the neighborhood.

When you are done you can plant your bag, leave for a while or take it with you.
