GrandGarden partners with afterschool enrichment programs, tapping older gardeners as instructors to children at low-income schools. We use a unique mobile garden truck to put on “pop up garden”-style events at five schools per week. Teaching children gardening has been shown to help reduce rates of obesity, as getting hands-on with healthy foods promotes healthier diets. When children garden, they get life lessons about growth and how their actions and surroundings impact their lives.
