Gardening is a great way to educate youth and families about where healthy food comes from. Each month, explore a different gardening topic with educational resources and hands on experiences with growing, cooking, and eating healthy produce and creating sustainable gardening systems. The curriculum includes both community-based gardening resources and resources for children and families to start their own garden at home! Get growing today!
Each month provides activities and resources on a different topic area related to community and home gardening. Enjoy exploring things like farmers markets, winter gardening, starting seedlings, picking your own fruits and vegetables, preserving your harvest and more!
