welcome to the Washington Youth garden!
We have been growing green dreams since 1971, and in 2016, our 45th year, our mission is to inspire children and families to engage in self-discovery, explore relationships with food and the natural world, and contribute to the health and well-being of their communities by using the garden cycle as an empowering tool for all those who wish to learn and grow with us.
The primary goals of the program are to:
- Educate youth about our relationships with food by understanding its nutritional value, health implications, cultural significance and from where it originates.
- Connect children to the natural world as a learning resource and as a place for self exploration and personal growth.
- Develop through specifically designed curriculum, interpersonal skills, awareness of civic responsibility, and the opportunity for strong family ties.
