U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Education Outreach Specialist Annie Ceccarini (center, light color t-shirt) teaches students from E.L. Haynes School in Washington, DC about the reused tree stump that some of them are sitting on just one of many features in the Peopleâs Garden, during the opening day of the USDA Farmers Market and the official kick off of the People's Garden Friday activities on Friday, June 3, 2011 in Washington, DC. More than 200 children participated in activities at several learning stations teaching them how to make planter pots out of household trash items; make salsa; experience the taste and smell of herbs; then search for those plants in the bed of Truck Farm, a mobile garden; and have a guided tour of the Peopleâs Garden, and learn the importance of worms in a garden. For many, it was the first time to eat a pea from a pod, plucked from a vine. The adjacent USDA Farmers Market is located at the corner of 12th Street and Independence Avenue and will be open every Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. through November 18th. Special complimentary events will be happening every Friday at the market and at the People's Garden all season. USDA Photo by Lance Cheung.
