The Orange County Partnership for Young Children is sponsoring the development of community gardens in Carrboro, with funding from the N.C. Health and Wellness Trust Fund. Families with young children are particularly encouraged to apply for gardening space. Guidance and support provided.
Growing Healthy Kids and a Healthy Community
Young children, families, and volunteers are all enjoying the fruits of their labor at the two community gardens located in Carrboro. The Growing Healthy Kids Project, funded by the NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund, in collaboration with the Orange County Partnership for Young Children, the Town of Carrboro, and O.C. Cooperative Extension, has supported and guided more than 25 families in growing their own fresh fruits and vegetables.
Along with upcoming cooking classes, local children and their families are learning the benefits of better nutrition, outdoor activity, and quality family time.
Come enjoy friendship and fresh produce. Sign up today!
