GROW-YOUR-OWN PROGRAM

Using our proprietary 10-week curriculum, The Big Garden offers a FREE summer garden program for ages 2-18 at participating Big Garden sites. This program aims to teach children and youth to grow, tend, harvest, cook, and preserve bounty from their own gardens. Our curriculum covers topics such as soil health and composting, companion planting, pollinators, harvesting, food systems, cooking, food preservation, and more! During the summer of 2016, The Big Garden offered weekly classes in 26 different locations, reaching 650 kids each week!
