A LiveWell garden sprouts in Silt
Kaysha Fuller, left, and Bailey Coy, both 5 and from Joyful Joyce’s Daycare in Silt, helped plant a vegetable garden on the patio of the Silt Library on Wednesday during story hour. The garden is a collaboration between Fat City Farmers and the Silt Library, which recently received a $2,000 mini-grant from LiveWell Garfield County. “We’re planting eight garden beds and combining stories with healthy snacks and taking care of the gardens so the children can experience the joys of fresh, healthy food and great literature together,” said Illene Pevec, program director for Fat City Farmers. The garden beds were donated by The Kitchen Community, a national foundation, and the plants were grown and donated by Yampah Mountain High students working with Growing Food Forward and Roaring Fork High students.
