PROGRAM SUMMARY – The Grow2Live Youth Gardening Program teaches children how to grow their own vegetables and gain a sense of confidence and independence. Now in its 4th year, Grow2Live will be partnering with Lyons Place II, an independent housing facility for senior veterans to incorporate intergenerational activities into our curriculum. The Grow2Live Program offers young people an opportunity to better understand their relationship with nature while creating an environment for learning and promoting cooperation through group activities. Using master gardeners, nutritionist, and educators we measure the program’s success by having weigh-ins, assessments from learning activities, and rap sessions of how the children are passing their learned information on to their family members and friends. PROGRAM COMPONENTS – The components of the Grow2Live Program are gardening, education for healthy living and character building for the youth of our community.
