"Let food be their medicine and health education be their food"
Youth Backyard Gardening Initiative's vision is to build a youth-led agricultural institution equipping youth with the power of green knowledge as the world moves toward a green economy.
Our mission is to teach local young people the power of gardening, pair youth with experienced gardeners to learn how to create backyard gardens and help youth to assist members of their community with building their own gardens.
To train youth to create and sustain backyard gardens in their own neighborhood.
Your fruits and vegetables
There is nothing more pleasing or rewarding than harvesting home-grown salad, herbs, fruit or vegetables from your own garden. And, no matter what space you have, from a single container to an entire patch, you can grow your own unbelievably fresh food with fantastic flavor.
About backyard gardening
Every 2nd Saturday of the month, join us for our Community Engagement event. You will learn about backyard gardening, growing plants from seeds, when to plant, what to plant and how to care for your garden.
Growing your own food has many health benefits:
It helps you eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.
You decide what kinds of fertilizers and pesticides come in contact with your food.
It lets you control when to harvest your food. Vegetables that ripen in the garden have more nutrients than some store-bought vegetables that must be picked early.
