The Organic Garden is a great experience for school-aged children. Our volunteers provide educational, hands-on experiences for students to actively learn about gardening, healthy foods, and the environment. Kids will love digging in the dirt, learning about composting, and taking a walk through the connected woods. There even are plenty of picnic tables for eating bagged lunches.
