Highland Youth Garden is one of the nation's premiere youth education gardens. Located in the struggling Hilltop community of Columbus, OH, HYG blends classroom lessons, after-school programs, and summer instruction to teach hundreds of area children about gardening, science, and a healthy lifestyle! Garden youth help to grow over 4,000lbs of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables each year, much of which the children take home to feed their families. For area children, the Garden is a source of healthy eating in a place where the only alternative is junk food from a corner store.
Curious about where your donation goes? Here are some uses for your contribution!
- A donation of $25 purchases an hour of children working productively in the dirt and tasting the fruits and vegetables they grow
- A donation of $100 buys the fertilizer the Garden needs for prosperous crops
- A donation of $500 funds one child's participation in our summer program instead of putting them on the streets
- A donation of $1,000 pays for a bountiful Garden Community Celebration in the Hilltop neighborhood
Highland Youth Garden is a proud project of Gladden Community House. All donations will be directed to Highland Youth Garden project fund with Gladden. For more information, check out Highland Youth Garden on Facebook or at our website!
