Pre-School Programs

The Healthy Youth Program is a healthy lifestyle program for children (preschool through grade 12) and their families. Many of our programs are based in school vegetable gardens, linking a healthy and active lifestyle with a healthy and sustainable environment and providing fresh produce for families in need.

We engage children and families through participatory education, hands-on activities, and interactive dialogue. All of our programs are youth and family centered, tailored to their unique needs, and build on the strengths of the participating youth and families for long-term success.

To recieve emails about nutrition, cooking and garden programs join our email list HERE.

Full and partial scholarships are available for all programs. Applications and more information can be found HERE.

For a taste of our programs, please check out our PROGRAM PHOTOS!

Looking for ways to help with these and other programs? We have many opportunities to GET INVOLVED!
