Hi, my name is Oonagh Connolly. I am currently a junior in high school and a part of the Local Leaders program. The officers at both Amador Valley High School and Foothill High School helped put together an amazing YouTube channel as a part of their Online Youth Outreach program to help reach out to elementary and middle school students during quarantine.
I recently created a fun video all about growing avocados from seeds. About a year ago I started growing avocados with my mom who taught me everything I know about gardening. Planting avocados is so much fun and super easy to do! People don't think twice after throwing away their avocado pits in the trash after they've eaten them. It's so sad that people don't realize that they can grow so many plants from seeds and cuttings of fruits and veggies that are usually thrown away. Growing herbs, green onions, garlic, and mint from cuttings is something my family has done since forever ago. Avocados are a new edition to our garden!
I hope you and your families will try growing some avocados! Check out my YouTube video below for a full tutorial!
