)-- Richard Brzakala, President of Applewood Acres Gardenig & Landscaping today announced the launch of Applewood Acres Gardening With Kids' Program which highlights the benefits of organic gardening to young children aged between six and twelve years old.
"This is a unique opportunity and a special service offering geared towards parents and inner-city youth," says Brzakala.
Brzakala describes the Applewood Program saying that "Applewood Acres will come to a clients home and visit with their children to provide a one hour educational seminar on the benefits and importance of organic gardening and practicing responsible gardening without the use or need of chemicals and pesticides."
Applewood Acres Gardening With Kids' program is a hands on, fun approach, encouraging children to have an enjoyable time doing such things as creating a vegetable or herb garden, planting small trees or shrubs, or creating a perennial butterfly garden and learning how to practice water conservation.
"I can't think of a better way of getting a child to become aware of the natural world and the responsibility we all have to protect it than by offering them an opportunity to learn how to care for plants and understand the importance of environmental stewardship through actually practicing it," says Brzakala.
