Greater Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church visits Bruno Vegetable Garden
Over 100 children from Camp Shiloh visited The Gardens on Friday to learn more about growing vegetables. Greater Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in partnership with Shades Mountain Baptist Church, Christian Service Mission and Jefferson County Master Gardeners Association have constructed raised bed gardens at the church to grow vegetables as part of their community outreach program. As part of their summer mission, the kids from Camp Shiloh visited The Gardens to learn more about vegetables and how they grow by visiting the Bruno Vegetable garden. Birmingham Botanical Gardens volunteers and Jefferson County Master Gardeners Karen Mitchell, Natalie Lee and Volunteer Coordinator Taylor Steele hosted the campers for a hands-on lesson about growing vegetables and herbs. Campers also used our Meet The Gardens Treasure Map to investigate other gardens during their visit.
