Gardening provides different forms of engagement for children.

These include:

  • Planting and maintaining gardens
  • Harvesting, preparing, and sharing food
  • Working cooperatively in groups
  • Learning about science and nutrition
  • Creating art and stories inspired by gardens.

Annually, the Club’s garden produces over 1000 pounds of produce for Club members to take home and share with their families.
