Webb City Farmers Market teaches kids gardening skills

WEBB CITY, Mo. – Some area kids Tuesday worked on their green thumb in Webb City, Missouri.

The Webb City Farmers Market hosted a kids’ gardening club. The club is designed for kids to learn about starting their own gardens and how to keep that garden thriving.

“I think it’s a life-long skill when you teach a child how to garden,” said Market Manager Rachel Lynch. “It’s something that they can do throughout their life. It helps them connect to their food, so that they can perhaps make healthier choices, and be proud of the food they are eating.”

Every child got to take home a seed project to begin their own garden.
