The LEAF (Learning for the Environment, Agriculture and Food) Program is an opportunity for youth to explore Common Good City Farm through our class sessions and garden drop in sessions. Youth can join for all 4 days each week or pick and choose. Program is drop in, no advance registration required, but we ask families to complete the linked registration form the first time they come.
LEAF class curriculum is designed for 5-12 year old students but activities are flexible and all ages are welcome to join, especially at Youth Garden Hours. In this program youth gain basic gardening skills, learn about healthful eating habits and get the opportunity to create healthy snacks and take home recipes!
All sessions are drop in, for the LEAF class (Thursday and Sunday) it is recommended to plan to attend the full time, for youth garden hours (Tuesday and Wednesday) you are welcome to come anytime within that window and stay for a quick visit or the full time available.View Program
