Garden Grand Opening

The kids couldn’t be more excited.

Today, we opened our Garden, Outdoor Education & Play space. For kids used to going from building to building across asphalt in an urban landscape, this is really special.

For our BGC members, it’s being able to play soccer on the grass, learn about the environment in an outdoor STEM class, be inspired to create art in and from nature, read a book outside, learn gardening to grow vegetables and herbs, and later use what they grow in our many healthy cooking classes.

A safe, creative, nurturing and peaceful space in nature for learning and growing in the City of Trenton.
