NYRP Offers Free Gardening Education


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.

“Even though this planet is round, there are just too many spots where you can find yourself hanging onto the edge, unless there’s some space, some place to take a breather for a while.” –Gloria Naylor
