Great Garden offers educational opportunities for children and community members to learn about gardening, nutrition, environmental science, and biology. The garden also rents plots to local individuals and families, and also donates produce to the local community.

Chris Marsh, Great Afternoons Program Director, shares “Over a ton of fresh produce has been given and harvested by local residents.”
