School Garden Army invites the community to celebrate the summer harvest this Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at Youthlinks from 8-10AM. Pick up some fresh veggies from our last farm stand of the season, take a tour of the Youthlinks/Oceanside East High School Garden, and learn about what the Garden Army has been doing this summer! We’ll have door prizes and contests to win free vegetables!

School Garden Army empowers youth to become leaders and responsible stewards of their environment using food as the mechanism of change. The program encourages land stewardship through sustainable local food production, improves public health through better nutrition and food security, and promotes community and economic development through investing in the next generation.
