Sign up for Washington Youth Garden's Family Program

Embark upon an exciting journey with your family and others in learning how to grow and prepare fruits and vegetables in creative and healthy ways with the Washington Youth Garden's family program, Growing Food...Growing Together. Participants learn and work collectively in communal gardening areas, share in the harvest of mutually grown organic produce, and experience healthy cooking demonstrations, nutrition instruction, farmers' market visits, and more!

Program occurs every Saturday morning beginning May 7; for the first time this year there will be rolling enrollment March through July where families can enroll in anywhere from 5 to 15 sessions. Each Saturday is capped at 25 families, so early registration is strongly encouraged! Each Saturday will feature a cooking demonstration with a local chef - check their website throughout the season to see which chef will be featured each Saturday.

Registration for any month's sessions must occur on or before the 15th of the preceding month. Registration for May Saturdays will be closed April 15th, so contact them now if you'd like to join them in May.
