In addition to growing healthy foods, the Y Community Giving Gardens commit to learning.
Features of the gardens include:
raised soil and permaculture beds
multiple types of hydroponics systems
recycled container planters
native pollinator gardens
drip irrigation to conserve water
vermiculture and composting bins
The gardens use all of these features as outdoor classrooms.
