LEAF (Learning for the Environment, Agriculture and Food), is Common Good's afternoon youth program. Through LEAF, youth gain basic gardening skills, learn about healthful eating habits and get the opportunity to create healthy snacks and take home recipes!
LEAF is an excitement-filled hour of hands-on farming, cooking, eating, and learning. Youth participate in the full farm-to-table cycle by caring for our Youth Garden, harvesting veggies, preparing a meal, and then sitting down to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Youth are encouraged to share what they learned on their farm with their families by taking home the recipe and some farm-fresh ingredients.
LEAF is free and open to any youth 6 - 12 years old. A simple registration form must be filled out by parents the first time their child attends.
