Grow and Eat a Garden!

Gardening with vegetables can be fun and can provide delicious and highly nutritious fresh food. 
Research shows that families with children that grow a garden eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, are more physically active, and spend more time together. There are many types of gardens from a large plot in your backyard to a medium raised bed or even a small container garden out your back door. Find a size that fits your family’s time. 
The Coconino County Public Health Services District Nutrition Program recommends following the “10 Steps to a Successful Vegetable Garden” from the University of Arizona Extension Office, www.extension.arizona.edu/pubs. These steps will help you achieve a green “thumbs up” to a healthier you. 
Don’t have time for a garden? Then let your local farmer’s do the work and you enjoy the benefits. The Arizona WIC Farmer’s Market and the Flagstaff Community Farmer’s Market are working together bringing fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs to local Farmer’s Market. Check your local city schedules or visit to the Flagstaff Markets that are starting soon!
