Go!Healthy with Children’s Aid Society

In 2006, the Go!Healthy Gardens program was born. The program teaches children about nutrition and health lifestyle, while allowing kids to use the garden as a living laboratory. Kids learn to grow and harvest; in addition, the products from the garden are used by youth from across the program to support their culinary adventure. Go!Healthy has helped to transform school yards, underutilized community gardens, and rooftops into vibrant growing spaces for education and enjoyment.
