Watch Me Grow

Lani Hindman Child Care Health Consultant with Beaufort-Hyde Partnership for Children worked with two child care facilities for the Watch Me Grow project.

The project was funded by a grant provided by ECU Health. Two centers were chosen out of applicants. Technical assistance focused on healthy eating, physical activity with a strong concentration on Farm to ECE. Centers utilized GO NAPSACC throughout the program.

Each center received a garden at their center. “We schedule a planting day for us to go to the center to work with children, staff, and some parents to build a garden for the center to enjoy for years to come!” Lani said. 

The gardens were built and planted in April.
The gardens now!
