City Sprouts After School
Our City Sprouts projects provide safe, beautiful vegetable and flower gardens in urban communities, enhanced by an outdoor education program that ensures interaction with the natural world, access to hands-on experiential learning, and an understanding of where food comes from. Through participation in City Sprouts, urban children develop an appreciation for the power of beauty and nature in city neighborhoods; the taste and health benefits of freshly picked veggies; and the possibilities created by taking an active part in enhancing your community.
City Green partners with a variety of community organizations, such as Boys and Girls Clubs, libraries and even schools, to grow gardens and run on-site nature-based educational programming after school throughout the seasons. City Green educators visit our partner City Sprouts gardens weekly April through November to teach gardening skills, inspire environmental stewardship, and expose kids to a variety of fresh local fruits and vegetables.
