High School Science Class
The Youth Garden Project works with Grand County High School’s Natural Resource Class to add a hands-on element to the work they are doing in the classroom once a week during the spring and fall. Often we relate bigger natural resource concepts, such as a subject like water management, to the smaller scale garden setting.
YGP gets the students involved with a variety of garden tasks that keep the students active and learning. Most recently the students have been involved with the Community Nibble Garden, an area we plant for community members and passersby on the bike path to take a snack of tasty veggies like peas or tomatoes. Students also help with other tasks on the rest of the Youth Garden Project site. We feel it is a great exposure to all the types of work that go hand in hand with gardening!
