The Garden

 

The Garden
Harvesting the Future

Lead Partner: Orange County 4-H University of Florida IFAS Extension

The Garden’s objective is to foster a safe environment where volunteers can engage students in topics and activities relating to gardening, nutrition, and agricultural career exploration.

  • This 10-week program includes hosting Guest Speakers to lead exploration in various gardening, nutrition, and agricultural topics, field trips into the community, and hands-on activities that reinforce the ideas presented
  • The program has three major hands-on components: personal herb container gardens, a teamwork effort to maintain an outdoor garden plot, and exploration into indoor hydroponic gardening
  • Partnership developed with Orange County 4-H to develop important life skills for future success
  • This is a youth crime reduction effort, which engages youth during afterschool hours.
