Ohio County Early Head Start Home Base Enjoys the Community Garden

On Friday, May 18, 2012 the Ohio County Early Head Start Home Base traveled by school bus to the 15th Street Community Garden (located in Wheeling, WV) for an extra special field trip.  The purpose of the trip was to give our youngest children and their families a chance to have an enriching, hands-on experience with planting a garden in a community setting.  This parent-planned field trip came about as an extension of the educational, health and nutritional activities done in the classroom and while on home visits.  Contact Tammy Klemm, parent educator, at 304.233.3290 for more details.
