Community Gardens


The Hidden Valley Camp garden will provide a teaching tool for Camp staff to teach the fundamentals of growing and providing your own fresh vegetables from the ground up to harvesting and preparing. Gardens also provide an exercise and other outdoor activities to meet the needs of the youth where obesity is becoming a major problem.

The garden in the Watkins Glen area will provide an area for local planting, gardening demonstrations and teaching. There will be proprietary spots available for people to garden, rows can be planted for the food bank and local schools can use this spot to teach gardening or garden related curriculum.
