Our summer program, named, “How Does Your Garden Grow” revolves around our 2 Community Gardens on Marquette Street and on Villa Street. The kids plant the seeds, water and tend the gardens daily, harvest the fruits of their labor, prepare those foods to eat as their snack for the day, read and write stories about freshly grown foods and learn as much as possible about the foods they grow/eat and the choices they make. The teachers prepare healthy snacks and teach the children about making healthy choices. The children are encouraged to try different foods and in different ways.
