N.b. this program is not being offered in 2021. But please see our Community Gardening program for 2021 opportunities that can also involve your kids.
For the historical record:
In summer 2019 we offered sessions twice a week to train children in raising vegetables in a home yard environment.
For 2020, we are making plans, to include seed starting and composting as well as tending and harvesting vegetables.
At least 2 qualified adults with a good background in gardening, including our summer interns, will conduct each activity and be with the kids at all times. We envisage 2 sessions a week from 4-5:30 p.m., but we can be flexible.
We want to accommodate everyone we can in this educational venture. If you (as a parent of an interested child) would like more info, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org/. Naturally we will scrupulously respect all relevant state and local health measures.
