Head Start Family Garden
Established Fall 2008, the Head Start Family Garden Project is a collaborative initiative of North Coast Opportunities’ Community Gardens Project, the Head Start Child Development Program, and the Noyo Food Forest. The purpose of the garden is to create opportunities for Head Start students to gain hands-on, garden based learning experiences and for their families to grow their own garden produce.
The Head Start classes meet in the garden weekly and participate in garden activities while they learn and explore. Produce from the garden is served to the students for their snacks and lunches. The children experience their food from seed to plate.
