Our mission is to work with urban children, youth and families to learn about, grow and prepare fresh foods, cultivated in an environmentally sustainable manner.
Most of our work takes place on school grounds, as a community-based partner with the schools. We support students in public schools by creating, maintaining and teaching in gardens developed on school property and to which students have daily or weekly access. In summer, the community is invited into the garden for a variety of programs suited to all ages, including youth green job training. The school gardens are a variety of settings such as native/naturalized plantings, meadow ecosystems, native tree species, and small-scale agriculture including production of kid-friendly small fruits and vegetables, aerobic/thermal composting and worm bins. When the weather gets cold, we bring the garden inside through classroom workshops on topics related to food and the environment.
We also run after-school programs in local parks, and workshops for community agencies, all with around food and gardening themes.
