In a Gentle Way...

"In a gentle way, you can shake the world."

Mahatma Gandhi 

Victoria, our new food blogger!
This past Friday, Washington County Master Gardener, Kathy Luoma, brought her friend, Victoria, to the RCS Teaching Giving Garden.   Victoria loves all types of veggies and fruit and was full of ideas on how people could enjoy eating and serving the fresh produce.  In the span of spending 30 minutes weeding with her, she shared so much information, that the natural connection was to ask her if she would like to post her own food stories on the blog.  By doing this, she could share these not only the youth coming to the garden, but their parents and our volunteers.

And her answer?  "YES!"

We are so excited that Victoria will be contributing, on an on-going basis, her tips, recipes, and thoughts on healthy eating.  This perspective, from a young person's point of view, will be a very valuable asset to our blog.

The RCS Teaching Giving Garden thanks Victoria for shaking up our blog a bit more with this new food contribution!  We look forward not only to the energy and that great smile you bring to the garden, (and all things Ranch), but to your food articles which will be so fun for people to read! 

Welcome, and thank you Victoria!
