“Gardening is one of America’s favorite pastimes. Grandparents, mothers, fathers and youth can partake in this creative, constructive activity to produce more than just beautiful flowers. Gardening gives people of all ages a place to play, experiment, and enjoy the ‘fruits’ of their labor” –Health and Nutrition from the Garden, Junior Master Gardeners.

This is the goal of the Youth Garden at the Itasca County Family YMCA. Through collaboration with The Y Childcare Department, Itasca County Master Gardeners, and Get Fit Itasca; youth participating in Childcare Programing at The Y have an opportunity to play in the dirt while learning about growing their own food.
