Growing Kids & Planting Gardens - Spirit Of America Tour

January 8, 2014

As a part of their "Spirit of America Tour", Lisa Smith & Nancy Reid of Big Blend Radio share an awesome interview with Manuel & Olga Jiminez at the Bravo Lake Botanical Gardens, Woodlake California. 

"Bravo Lake Botanical Garden is California’s cornucopia. The ten acre facility features an “agricultural theme” characteristic of the farming region and heritage. With more than one mile of gardens, visitors walking, bicycling, and in wheelchairs are treated to (depending on the season) a lavish display of roses, sunflowers, flowering fruit trees and tidy rows of colorful fresh vegetables. The gardens provide the most unique setting to see, smell and taste the best of California’s fruits and vegetables. 

From May to October, the gardens display exquisite fruit collections of citrus, grapes, peaches, plums, cherries, apricots, selected vegetables and many others.  The rose gardens, with more than 100 varieties, are most beautiful April to May and September to October.  

The gardens are a partnership between the Woodlake Pride Inc. and City of Woodlake.  The City of Woodlake provides the land and water. Woodlake Pride Inc. has been “growing kids” in the gardens for more than 15 years. Adult volunteers of Woodlake Pride mentor youth with outdoor learning and volunteer opportunities. The youth are involved in every facet of the gardens from planning, planting, maintaining and harvesting the gardens.  Annually, the youth grow between 10,000 and 20,000 flower and vegetable transplants." -  http://www.sierranevadageotourism.org
