The Gardening with Young People Program is designed to meet with different groups of young people from the Acton-Boxborough community who are invited to participate in a hands-on educational project involving one or more of the following concentrations: horticulture, floral design, conservation, civic beautification and garden therapy.
The Gardening with Young People Program provides assistance and funding, if necessary. In the past, the committee has worked with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownies, Junior Girl Scouts, schools (including Acton-Boxborough Best Buddies) and the Acton Memorial Library Children’s Department. It also ran a children’s activity at the Acton-Boxborough Farmers’ Market last fall.
During the 2013-2014 year we will continue to focus on the ActonBoxborough Best Buddies program and welcome opportunities to work with other groups in our community.
