After School Program

The Youth Garden Project hosts two afterschool programs per week throughout the fall and spring. Over the winter, we host one session per week. Families sign-up their kids through BEACON Afterschool Program. Program themes vary each trimester where students can participate in a variety of activities including: hunting for bugs & insects, harvesting & planting, cooking with garden ingredients, exploring various art forms, games & free play, and the list goes on!

beyond as we conduct experiments in the garden each week.
