The goal is for this program is to ultimately be campus wide & reach every youth. And thanks to generous donors, all 8 cottages (living quarters for 10 to 17 residents) have deer proof garden beds!
This program has 2 main components with suggested lessons & activities provided.
- Know, Sow, Grow – hands on growing with a set of 6 garden-based activities & lessons geared towards teaching the basics of plant parts & processes, emphasizing garden vocabulary & observation.
- Cooking with Curiosity – introduces the youth to cooking skills while building reflection practices so that they can cook confidently on their own terms. It is a 4-unit program
We foresee one volunteer or team working with the students on the Know, Sow, Grow portion. And a 2nd volunteer or team sharing the Cooking with Curiosity part.
