Children & Families Community Gardening

“Schoolyards, underutilized community gardens, and rooftops become organic laboratories where children and youth (ages 3-18) are introduced to the pleasures of growing, harvesting, and tasting fresh fruits and vegetables. Young children simultaneously learn about natural biological processes like cover pollination, plant morphology, and photosynthesis.”
