Tilth Alliance's Children's Garden is sprouting young gardeners year 'round.

Children and youth learn to care for themselves and other living things through Tilth Alliance's garden and farm education programsTogether we discover where our food comes from. We taste fresh vegetables straight from the garden or farm, tend and harvest crops, collect seeds, make compost, learn about worms, insects and pollinators and explore our natural environment in hands-on science based learning.
