PITTSFORD — The Pittsford Village Farm isn’t just growing vegetables: It’s growing gardeners.

And in Pittsford, they start them young.

From 11 a.m. to noon every Saturday, the Pittsford Village Farm Community Garden hosts its new Sprouts Club, teaching young people the ins and outs of gardening, from earth worms and healthy soil to different varieties of cherry tomatoes.

The club was the brainchild of co-founder Laurie Kamuda of Kamuda’s Country Market, who wanted to do something for the community garden, and the local kids as well.

So she, fellow community member Ginny Carroccia and community garden coordinator Krysta Piccoli decided to join forces and put the two ideas together: a kids garden club, with an 8-foot by 20-foot community garden plot all their own.
