Our Own Carrot Garden

Smyrna Mission School children are introduced to home-gardening.  They will grow vegetables in a piece of land in the Smyrna Mission House.  These vegetables will be used for their lunch and the rest will be sold and profits from it would be put into school projects.

(There are plenty of fruits on the tree and I'm not sure how many will be left at the end of the day :)
