HYPE Green Project – GREEN HOUSE

HYPE Kids Gardening Program “Teach and Feed” (Outdoor Gardening)
 
Kids love using their hands to create things. Gardening is very interactive and engaging activity that excites our youth to not only learn more about healthy fresh foods, but actually cook and eat them! What better way to show them how much fun fresh foods are by letting them plant a garden. It can be as simple as one plant in a single pot or a full designated garden plot. Kids will enjoy seeing the “fruits” of their labor. Make healthy foods and nutrition fun for them to learn about.
The HYPE Kids Gardening program will be enhanced with parental partners. We invite moms and dads to partake in your child’s planting experience. The produce grown will be provided to needy families for little or no cost. Thus the name “Teach and Feed”
