The Children's Peace Garden
About the Program
The Children’s Peace Garden serves children ages 4-10. The goals of this program are that students learn about the source of the food they eat, organic gardening practices, the importance of biodiversity and community, and reconnecting with the Earth. They participate in a number of engaging, hands-on gardening activities that encourage peace, respect, environmental stewardship and friendship. The Children's Peace Garden offers spring and fall field trips and classroom visits for preschool and elementary school groups as wells as an After School Garden Club and five weeks of summer camps.
The Children’s Peace Garden is conveniently located in Boulder near the intersection of Iris and Broadway at 1630 Hawthorn, this organic agriculture site is home to the Children’s Peace Garden, ¡Cultiva! Youth Project, Hawthorn Community Garden, Able Garden and Greenhouse.
Growing Gardens is a non-profit organization dedicated to cultivating community through gardening. Children’s Peace Garden field trips are led by Growing Gardens staff and interns. The summer camps are led by Growing Gardens staff, interns and ¡Cultiva! Youth project participants who help adult leaders teach the curriculum. These teens work all summer growing produce to sell at our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and donate to local nonprofits.
