Garden and library make perfect ones needs.  A garden means the field that was planted – fruits, vegetables, flowers.  Everyone needs daily diet to eat fruits and vegetables.  Everyone likes flowers for decoration.  All of these come from the garden.  Without the garden, there are no fruits, no vegetables nor flowers.

For example, our Open Door Learning Center has a school garden.  We planted many kinds of vegetables.  We harvest it about every week and we got over 100 lbs of vegetables.  Students can take vegetables home for food.  That means the school garden fulfills some parts of student needs.

On the other hand, about the library: A library means a place or room where there are many story books.  One proverb has said that knowledge is coming from the book.  For example, if we want to know something about knowledge, we can’t find it without books.  Therefore a library can let us know what we need.

So, if we have a garden and a library, we have everything we need.
