Education Programs for Kids & Youth

— filed under:

Tilth Alliance's Children's Garden is sprouting young gardeners year 'round.

Tilth Alliance’s education programs help young people of diverse backgrounds develop nourishing connections with their community and the natural world through meaningful learning experiences in fields, farms, and kitchens. We are committed to inspiring the next generation of leaders to take active roles building a just and abundant food future for all.

Our field trips, service learning, volunteer days and summer camps provide opportunities for children and youth to grow, prepare and eat food with a clear understanding of the interconnectedness of food, health, community and earth’s sustainability. Together we discover where good food comes from. We use all of our senses to experience the seasons, tend and harvest crops, taste and learn from plants, cook up delicious dishes in the kitchen, meet worms and pollinators, collect seeds, build compost piles, do field-based science, make art and more.

Summer Camps

Summer Farm & Garden Camps

At Tilth Alliance's summer camps, kids 1-15 years old spend summer days outdoors being "urban farmers" — discovering where our food comes from and learning about the natural world. Summer camp is also a time to have fun adventures exploring our gardens and farm, making art, singing song and playing games — all with urban farm flair! Sign up for summer camps.

Field Trips, Service Learning and Volunteering

Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands is an amazing place to learn in wetland forests, farm fields and the kitchen. Bring your class for a field trip, service learning visit or volunteer day and leave inspired. Each program is thoughtfully designed to promote environmental stewardship and encourage food systems learning. Experiences available for pre-school through high school. Learn more.
