The Green Teen Garden Program Gives Back!

Posted on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 by Cupertino_Library

The Cupertino Library’s Green Teen Garden Project is all about giving back to the community!

That’s right, now that the Green Teens have successfully completed growing, caring for, and harvesting their first rotation of crops, it’s time to help give back to the Cupertino community. All vegetables grown have been donated to the West Valley Food Pantry.

The Green Teens were extremely happy to be able to donate over 5lbs of vegetables to the Food Pantry. The donation included organic lettuce, spinach, and cucumbers.

Plus, as they garden grows, so do the gardening skills of these green-thinking young adults. The teens have been working hard on the upkeep and daily maintenance of this cooperative garden to make it a success.

Next up, the teens set their sights on a second growing season for the summer months. There is much more to come, so check back soon!

Here, several of the Green Teens visit the West Valley Food Pantry to deliver food and take a tour of the facility.

 

Special thanks to the Friends of the Cupertino Library for graciously funding this cooperative, learning project. To learn more about the F.O.L., please
