Our youth summer gardening program is in the planning stages for its 4th summer season. The youth work with educators to learn about growing vegetables in the youth’s very own garden beds at the Camp Street Community Garden. They also take a trip to Nuestro Huerto’s urban farm site down the street, prepare healthy foods at the South Worcester Neighborhood Center, learn about nutrition and this past summer, coordinated their very own summer garden party with our larger community garden network.
We are honored to work with these awesome kids-and the Neighborhood Center-who schedules us in to their daily activities that include soccer, crafts, journaling, reading and more-right in the youth’s very own neighborhood park.
If you would like to help out with this program during the summer months, we’d be glad to have you. Please contact NuestroHuertoWorcester@gmail.com.
