KIDSGARDENING

Youth gardens give young people a way to improve their communities and feel more connected to the world around them. For Kiwanis International, a partnership with KidsGardening helps provide access to those benefits — while supporting the Kiwanis cause of health and nutrition. 

Research shows that young people who engage with garden programs increase their skills across a diverse range of critical growth areas, including personal well-being, environmental stewardship, and nutritional awareness and attitudes. Youth gardens also excite kids about eating fresh local produce. They’re a perfect way to deepen the connection to local food systems — and help youth grow, thrive and prosper through interaction with nature. 

Thanks to Kiwanis International’s partnership with KidsGardening, Kiwanis family clubs have access to 40 years’ worth of rich educational content, along with a tailored toolkit for supporting new and existing youth garden programs.
