An Ohio YMCA Learns to Eat in Color With GardenSoxx®
Created in the design of a nutritional color wheel, the garden was set up by youth who attend the YMCA, with the help of a GardenSoxx® representative. Not only did their participation allow them to get outdoors and engage in physical activity, but the efforts of putting together a garden provided an excellent opportunity for them to socialize and work together as a team.
The garden was built in a circular shape, divided into sections that correspond to a food color - resulting in a nutritional color wheel of fruit and vegetable plants that provide a variety of essential vitamins and minerals. YMCA program members are encouraged to aim for five servings a day of fresh fruit or vegetables and to incorporate various color groups in their choices. The on-site garden makes it even easier for members to apply this daily goal.
