NYRP Offers Free Gardening Education

NYRP

New York Restoration Project (NYRP) offers free, hands-on gardening education targeted to kindergarten through eighth grade students. All programs are taught in one of NYRP’s local community gardens. Choose between 1-6 sessions in which students learn how to tend to a garden and raise vegetables from seed to plate, while gaining valuable lessons in environmental science and stewardship.

If you’ve visited Community Green before you know I learned to garden as a kid at a local community garden. That exposure was invaluable, not to mention incredible and led to a life long love of green things. That’s nature nurture is especially important for city kids. If your program can take advantage of NYRP’s program, you certainly should.
