The World Garden:

The Common Threads World Garden is an outdoor program designed to teach children about planting, maintaining, and harvesting from a garden. Once the produce is harvested, we use healthy recipes to demonstrate and bring to life the Common Threads core nutritional philosophies and lessons. Students are given a hands-on experience in the garden while learning about plants, gardening, harvesting, cooking healthy foods and proper exercise. Classes are offered in 6-week sessions in the spring and fall.
