City Growers harnesses the wonders of nature
to increase environmental and food literacy, cultivate curiosity,
and provide transformative experiences for urban youth.
The time that a young person spends outside of the academic day is just as important on her development as a person as the time spent in the classroom. City Growers’ urban agriculture-focused after school programs, summer camps, and job training programs allow kids to learn about themselves, their world, and their futures.
We believe every child should have access to farm- and garden-based learning, particularly in cities, where space, light, experience, and resources may be scarce. City Growers gives educators the tools, knowledge, and inspiration they need to engage their students in hands-on activities that support their curricular or programmatic roles.
