The Incredible Edible Sound Garden

This project will be focused on ecological literacy, sensory therapy, and food literacy by enhancing hands-on experience of community members in the outdoor garden spaces located at the Kendale Lakes Branch Library. Funding for this project will allow for Citizens for a Better South Florida to purchase interactive musical instruments and vegetable garden materials for the library that will engage individuals to increase their health, well-being, and quality of life by actively participating in the outdoors. Community members will be able to learn how to grow their own food and we will demonstrate how they can use food harvested from the garden to make simple, healthy snacks or meals.
