Let’s Move Boise and Boise Urban Garden School has launched a “Grow a Row” program to help make fresh produce more accessible and contribute to Idahoans staying healthy.
Providing access to fresh produce will help the 16.3% of Idaho’s Children, who are food-insecure, have the food resources needed to stay healthy.
Boise Urban Garden School will also provide free educational garden classes April 23rd and 26th. These classes are geared to provide the public with organic gardening skills to help them succeed in growing an extra row in their gardens. The grow packet includes: a guide, seeds, and information about pantry locations.
”Let’s move,” is a national initiative that works to provide resources to help children grow healthier and learn positive habits to pursue their dreams. The initiative works with four pillars to create environments that support healthier choices. Pillar I – Reducing the risk of obesity in early childhood, Pillar II – Making healthy food affordable and accessible, Pillar III – Providing healthy food in schools, and Pillar IV – Increasing physical activity. “Grow a Row” is a way the community can contribute to helping Idahoans get the access to fresh produce needed to stay healthy. If you would like to participate in the “Grow a Row” program, please visit the Let’s Move Boise Website. You can request to have a packet mailed directly to you!
