"Being out in nature is truly something that is not a part of my students' lives. They are some of the toughest kids I know and have had some rough lives and heartbreaking experiences. Yet spending the day in the Youth Garden brings out the peaceful child in them...these kids need the outdoors and the WYG has been the perfect way to introduce the greatness of nature to some pretty tough kids."

The U.S. National Arboretum recently announced that, due to sequestration budget pressures, it will be closed to the general public three days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) beginning May 14, 2013. Field trips and volunteer times will continue as planned. However, the Washington Youth Garden will be inaccessible to public visitors on these days.
We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate these changes.
The Washington Youth Garden is currently seeking summer interns to work with us during June and July.
Field Trip Assistants will work with our science-based field trip program (SPROUT). A perfect opportunity for anyone looking to build their skills and experience in garden-based education.
Our Summer Communications Intern will put writing and media skills to help share the Youth Garden story.
Bring your class out to the Washington Youth Garden next growing season for an educational field trip. SPROUT (Science Program Reaching OUT) trips are specifically designed to give your students a hands-on outdoor experience they'll remember.
We are currently scheduling garden trips for the 2013 season.
