Zoom: Sow and Grow

Groundwork Southcoast is a non-profit environmental program serving Fall River and New Bedford. They work with inner-city youth called the Green Team, on gardening and beautification projects. They recently launched a new program called Sow and Grow through which kits containing biodegradable soil pots, bags of gardening soil and up to four different kinds of seeds are distriubted to families who are interested in learning how to grow their own vegetables. Several articles have appeared in both the FR Herald News and NB Standard Times explaining how gardening reduces stress.
