Youth




Here at Grow Food, Grow Hope, we know that creating a healthy and sustainable future for our communities begins with engaging the next generation. 

Read & Seed
Read & Seed is a gardening and environmentally focused learning opportunity for children held each month at the Center for Civic and Service Engagement on the Wilmington College Campus.

GFGH staff and volunteers preform a reading of a green-themed book and do a fun gardening activity with the children. The children are then encouraged to talk about what they learned from the lesson and to share their ideas with family and friends.

Read & Seed is free and open to the public.

Summer Camps

GFGH sponsors a summer day-camp for children aged 5-13.

Camp is focused on encouraging children to engage with the outdoors and to develop smart sustainability minded habits early in life.

Update:  Grant funding has ended for our summer camp program.  We are currently assessing the future of the program.  Stay tuned for further updates.
