Youth Education

Neighborhood children from nearby PEAK Initiative visit the Cherry Street Community Garden to discover its bounty and learn about growing healthy food. Our programs support youth from first grade through high school.

BloomMKE provides the following means of support:

  • Educational program content development
  • Conducting spring and summer youth programs
  • Assistance planting garden plots at PEAK Initiative
  • Direct funding of educational materials and for plants/seeds dedicated to youth community garden plots

In addition to formal programs, we have a Kid’s Garden at the Cherry Street Community Garden for all youth visitors to investigate, pick and taste fresh vegetables. We do request that our young visitors be accompanied by a guardian or responsible adult.
