The Growing Matters Garden program provides garden-based hands-on learning opportunities for local youth and the larger community.
Students put their hands in the soil and understand where their food comes from, how great it tastes right from the garden, and why growing organic is so important.
Over the winter, the property housing
our main garden site on North Westnedge was sold. Our program's
emphasis in 2013 is to enrich our year-round support of Woodward
Elementary School's Roots of Knowledge garden.
At this garden site, we focus on growing vegetables (using sustainable, organic practices), but we also have areas for herbs, strawberries, and flowers.
A portion of the produce will be sold at the Douglass Farmers' Market. To see what is available, please visit our produce page.
