For this activity, we learned about container gardening and followed a recipe to prepare a snack, all going along with the 'faith' theme we had for the month
Container gardening: Plant seeds (something easy to care for and fast-growing like herbs) in pots. Explain the care needed for growing plants for food. We planted cilantro seeds, since that went along well with making the pico de gallo, but you could plant anything.
Talk about how faith is like a seed: (See Alma 32:27–43)
Learn to make ‘pico de gallo’ salsa: (fresh salsa, no cooking required). Recipe below.
PICO DE GALLO RECIPE:
- 6 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
