THE GOODNESS IN FOOD
TGIF Returns March 2024
TGIF is a seasonal program designed to engage and educate elementary-aged youth about healthy eating and sustainable gardening. Over the course of four weeks, participants are introduced to a variety of fruits and vegetables through interactive lesson plans. Children learn about the nutritional benefits of fresh produce and gain hands-on experience in cultivating their own seasonal crops. Each week, they take home recipes to replicate the dishes they've prepared and independently explore the sustainable advantages of embracing a greener lifestyle. In the final week, kids have the opportunity to engage in immersive, hands-on learning at Overflow Farms and harvest their own fresh produce!

Why Enroll Your Child?
Promoting Nutrition. Educating Young Minds.
TGIF provides a dynamic and interactive platform tailored for elementary-aged youth. Through engaging lesson plans, children not only learn about healthy eating but also gain valuable knowledge about sustainable gardening practices. As kids replicate and reflect on what they've learned, they develop essential life skills such as following instructions, teamwork, and responsibility. These skills contribute to their overall personal growth and enhance their social interactions. By the end of the session, we hope your child has increased:
