Garden Poems

garden poetryGardening can be inspirational, and these young poets agree! This summer, Healthy Waltham held gardening clubs at Chesterbrook, Dana Court, and Prospect Hill Terrace housing communities. One warm day, students from our summer garden club at Chesterbrook took a break from gardening to write poems inspired by nature, vegetables and flowers. Thanks to all who helped out or attended the summer gardening clubs this year, especially our summer interns Liz and Soumya, and a special thank you to our Board President, Dr. Nadene Stein, for leading the club at Chesterbrook and for leading the kids in writing poems about gardening. See some photos from the gardening clubs here.

Enjoy the poetry from our gardening poets!
