Do you enjoy spending time outside and do you want to learn how to grow and cook your own delicious food? Join us for Growing Food and Sustainability’s first after school program! Students will learn to plan a garden and plant seeds in the greenhouse, transplant and harvest veggies at the youth farm, make their own garden-fresh snacks, and will also explore a variety of topics and activities focused on small scale urban agriculture. Kids from last summer’s garden camp said that it was “awesome” and that we cooked “the best snacks”, so don’t miss out!
