Our Mission

The Youth Garden Project cultivates healthy children, families, and community through educational programs and connecting people with food from seed to table.

The food we grow informs and inspires our educational practice, and also nourishes our community! Find out where the food from our 1.5 acre garden ends up.

We use the garden as a cross-discipline learning tool that connects kids to the environment and our local food system! Learn more about our youth programming.

Gardening not only builds soil, it also builds community! A garden nurtures many forms of connection. Learn how you can be a part of our community at the youth garden.

Upcoming Events and Opportunities

Annual Spring Plant Sale Fundraiser!

YGP’s Annual Spring Plant Sale will be held Saturday, April 27th from 9am-1pm.

With over 4000 plant starts (peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, flowers, and so much more!) to choose from, you’ll be sure to find everything you need to grow an amazing 2024 garden. All proceeds go towards YGP’s youth and community programming.

The Spring Plant Sale includes a large variety of locally-grown vegetable starts, herbs, and annual flowers. Plants are grown using sustainable practices by responsible growers. YGP Farm Crew starts planting in our greenhouse in late winter, and hardens-off many of the plants a few weeks before the sale.  

Breakfast treats, Curve Coffee, and YGP merch will be also available for purchase. Come spend a beautiful morning at the Youth Garden while supporting our mission of growing healthy food, kids, and community!

Learn more about the Plant Sale and the 2024 varieties we will be selling below.
