Just in time for Earth Day, Beaufort Jasper Comprehensive Health Services presented a session called “Planting Seeds for Success”. Aujena Mungin walked us through the steps of planting a garden, which started with the actual pot, soil, and seeds provided. Physically and metaphorically, the first step is to plan out your garden and determine what goals are important. Then it’s important to acquire the right tools and line up the appropriate support. There are many things to consider throughout the process, including if the conditions are optimal to get started now, removing the weeds, and documenting your progress.
At the end, we had a beautiful potted plant as a symbol of the seeds we’re planting towards success. And on this important day where we honor this Earth and all it provides us, we will continue planting seeds on our journeys using the tools we learned about today.
This session was co-sponsored by Beaufort County First Steps and Parents as Teachers.
