Come Join a great program that will teach youth all about the basics of gardening. The best part is you'll get to eat what you grow! It is a great opportunity to have hands-on experience with growing your own food. Youth will be taking part in their own personal nutrition by watching the veggies grow from seeds and ending up on the dinner table.
