Additional programming is also being developed in conjunction with the garden:
- Mentoring: The local gardening community and volunteers will work alongside teens assigned to community service by Medina County Juvenile Court. The teens will gain a new perspective of their community and the positive impacts they can make.
- Cooking Classes: Mark Williams of Williams on the Lake has committed to teaching youth cooking skills using produce from the garden
- Nutrition Education: Community members will learn the foundations of proper nutrition and the health benefits of produce grown in the garden.
Thank you to the Medina County Women's Endowment Fund, the Medina County Community Fund, and the many private donors that made the Lafayette Rd. Community Gardens & Orchard a huge success.
Please stay posted for our upcoming 2014-2015 growing season.
