Read and seed

"Read and seed" health literacy course

Read and Seed is a free Health Literacy online class featuring the KLC’s community garden. It’s a high-energy series where participants learn about:

  • Growing fruits and vegetables 
  • Food safety tips 
  • Healthy and delicious recipes 
  • Fun food-related activities 
  • Easy exercises for indoors and out

In this class, you will learn tips and strategies for keeping you and your family healthy and active. We will discuss how to stretch your food dollars and shop on a budget. We will also share healthy recipes and exercises you can do at home! Staying active and eating a balanced diet is key to your health. We want to help make nutritious meals and physical activity a daily part of your family’s life. Each class includes an interactive presentation with fun activities and recipe demos. In the garden, we’re growing Ace peppers, Big Beef tomatoes, summer squash, strawberries, and so much more!
