About Green Teens
National Garden Club and Federated Garden Clubs of CT award winning youth gardening program at Trackside
The Wilton Garden Club and Trackside Teen Center team up annually to offer the Green Teens program for middle school students. The goals of the program are to get more young people involved with creating and maintaining vegetable gardens, to teach youth about the importance of healthy foods, and to give back to the community as the produce they grow will be donated to the Wilton Food Pantry. Participants can earn service hours in this Spring program or during the weekly Summer session while harvesting produce for the Wilton Food Pantry along with cutting and making fresh flower arrangements for the Senior Center.
Green Teens is open to youth currently enrolled in grades 6-10th. Led by experienced gardeners from the Wilton Garden Club, youth will participate in hands-on activities of designing garden beds, planting, maintaining, harvesting as well as learning how to cook with the produce grown in their gardens. There will also be an opportunity for families and friends to work the gardens over the summer months.
Trackside Teen Center is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization devoted to providing our youth a safe & fun place to socialize with their peers, engage in enriching activites, and enjoy themselves.
