Abdelghani teaches the children how to plant, nurture and harvest the fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs.
“I always tell the kids they’re scientists,” Abdelghani said.
“The more you trim the herbs, the better they grow really,” she told the children.
The garden’s raised beds and materials were donated by the Master Gardeners and others.
The Danville Library Foundation helped the garden receive a National Gardening Association grant.
The grant is one of 10 awarded from 500 applicants from 12 Midwestern states.
The $1,000-valued award included vegetable and herb plant starts, classroom items, tool package and money for soil.
