Thanks to generous donors, all 8 cottages (living quarters for 10 to 17 residents) have deer proof garden beds! Compassionate volunteers are working with the youth every Wednesday at 5:30 PM and Saturday at 10 AM for an hour. More helpers are needed! Can you join us?
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
