Growing Mint, Making Ice Cream

5 Oct

Children in the YWCA After-School program have been very active in our organic garden this semester. Recently they took part in a fun activity using mint that they had grown and harvested. Specifically, the mint was used as an ingredient to make ice cream in individual ice-filled bags! It was a hit. If  that activity doesn’t get kids excited about gardening, what will?
