The Swartmore resident won the American Garden Club Award for his work with Chester Eastwood Garden

Chester – Swarthmore Swarthmore Barbara Nagel, coordinator of the St. Paul Community Garden for Chester Estates, Inc., is one of 20 recipients nationwide at the Elizabeth Abernati Hall Hall Garden Club in the United States. The annual award recognizes the outstanding achievement of continuing early childhood education. A $ 1,000 honor and fellowship check was recently presented by Weeders Garden Club members.

“(Backyard volunteer) Kate McAlster told us about Barbara while we were traveling at Jenkins Arborure,” said club member Julie Devono. She talked about the wonderful things that are going on in the garden, and we realized that she was the perfect person for the prize.

One of the enrichment clubs offered at CEI Out-of-School Program and Summer Camp Phoenix, Community Park provides practical and outdoor instruction for K-8th grade children. Children can learn about plant life and nutrition, including trying hard-earned fruits and vegetables and sharing them with their families and communities.

For Nagel, a community garden is a nine-month project. In her direction, the children begin to sow seeds during the winter lighting, move them to the garden in the spring, and care for the plants until they are ready to pick or pull from their adult helpers, watering, weeding. Flowers are placed on the sidewalk to make the garden more attractive to the neighbors.

The three-season process appreciates the plant life cycle from seed to shoot next year. Nature provides a good example of how to work in harmony, allowing more of the pollen to visit the flowers in the cave and allow them to grow fruits and vegetables.

“Children can suffer from plant blindness – not understanding how things grow or where their food comes from,” said weed president Karen Shepard. “When you look at it in the ground, you realize that it did not come from a package.”

The garden is to fill the children’s minds and stomachs. When Nagel’s hands do not dig into the ground, he plans to write. Older children carry writing magazines; They draw non-reader images and learn new words to put with them to express their views. The garden library, full of age-appropriate books, is used as a resource to learn about bed bugs, birds and plants, how important barrels of rain, and how food affects our bodies.
The Penn State Delaware County Master Gardeners Community Gardener is awarded annually, ranking first in 2018 and 2019 and ranked fifth among the 2,600 community distribution centers registered in the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society harvesting program last year. More than ፓ 700 worth of products are included in the package provided by CEI’s Hunger Safety Net. The program provided 3,143 sacks last year and provided 1,117 families with three meals a day for six meals a day.

Nagel was unaware of his candidacy in the winter. Appropriately, McAlster and the organizers DeVuono, Shepard and Jennifer Fryberger visited the garden to give a presentation.
“I am amazed and honored to receive this award from the American Garden Club. “I am proud to work with so many talented volunteers who have helped bring Chester East children to the garden,” said Nagel. “It’s great to see them get their hands on the soil and learn about the sun, water, soil, worms and insects and grow healthy fruits and vegetables for their families.”
