In this project, youth will learn how to plan, plant, maintain and cultivate their own plant life for beauty, health and cuisine. This project will give youth an opportunity to learn that plants play a vital role for animals and humans providing food, shelter, fiber, medicine, oxygen, and beauty.
Gardens will also provide the setting to teach and/or reinforce the concepts of:
- Appreciation of nature
- Plant growth and development
- Science and nutrition.
