Kids harvesting vegetables

At Community GroundWorks Troy Kids’ Garden, kids develop a deep and powerful connection with food and nature. Staff found that when children plant a seed, tend that plant, harvest the fruit, and cook it, they develop a new relationship with that food.

And it has the power to transform their eating habits—as one young chef commented while grilling some summer squash, “You know, I eat my fruits and veggies here, and I actually like them!”
