The Garden Is Open To Families, Youth Of All Ages Come out and enjoy

The PEBC Learning Garden is a program geared for involving area gardeners in mentoring youth in the art and joy of gardening. Gardening is not only good exercise, but also provides wonderful opportunities to connect to the land, develop appreciation for living things, inspires stewardship through planting a seed and nurturing the plant throughout the season - thus reaping the benefits of fresh vegetables, flowers and herbs!

This garden project is open to participants of all ages. We have a total of eight garden plots available for public use.

Volunteers are welcome to stop out at anytime to help with garden planting in the spring - weeding, watering and harvesting in the summertime - and garden cleanup in the fall.

Participants are responsible for planting their own seeds and tending their 4' X 8' garden plot and its surrounding area.
