Edgewood Community Learning Garden is an exciting new adventure every day.
On the site of an old apartment building, the garden was rebuilt in 2014/2015 to better meet the needs of the school aged-kids in the community. Serving as a demonstration garden, there are fruit trees, veggie beds, compost bins, pollinator plants, ornamentals, a rain garden, and a play area with a treehouse. The space also includes a modern community center where events, classes, cooking demos, summer camps, afterschool programs and meetings can be held.
Built for education, the Edgewood Community Learning Garden is a fantastic place for kids to learn and grow through school programs and by visiting the garden on their own time. Keep an eye out for ways to engage!
The garden is strategically designed for all your garden to classroom needs. Bring your next field trip! More information.
After School Clubs
After School Clubs are on hiatus until further notice.
Tuesdays 3 pm-4 pm: Students work with us to plant and tend the Edgewood vegetable garden as well as other fun activities like harvesting and painting Tennessee Dancing Gourds and creating garden art. After school students even got the chance to work with a local artist to create a beautiful mural in the garden.
Thursdays 3 pm-4 pm: Students and their parents work with us to harvest garden produce and prepare a meal with it to enjoy together. Cooking club falls on the same day as our weekly farm stand, so families can easily take home garden produce to replicate the recipes we learn in class at home.
