This program is geared towards providing youth in our community with the opportunity to learn how to grow their own food. This is a creative hands on experience that teaches about gardening basics, plan anatomy, plant and soil relationship, succession & plot planning/planting, weeding and garden care, pollinators and insect identification & importance, harvesting produce, seed saving, and much more!! Youth will take some plants and produce home to share with their families. There may be a guest speaker/presentations, fieldtrips, and other events. More information will be provided as the season progresses.
