NFK Community Garden

Thanks to the generosity of a friend of the Kids Zone, our community garden is getting a new home and a facelift! The community garden is an element of the My Health, My Life Project, an ongoing program at Neighbors For Kids designed to help prevent childhood obesity, encourage healthy lifestyle choices, and engage children in daily fitness and sports.

Children work  hands-on in the garden and learn about sustainable organic gardening, the benefits of growing healthy, nutrient-rich foods, and creative ways to add fresh produce to the family table! Ramsey, our volunteer garden coordinator, and staff members Johnny and Heide have big plans for the little KZ Garden!
