Youth & Community Garden (Free) - All Summer

We would like to extend the opportunity to visit and enjoy the garden to the members of our community! Join us this summer in caring for and enjoying the fresh produce that’s grown in our Youth & Community Garden. Located in front of Arrowhead Community Center, the garden is a product of a joint partnership between the University of Illinois Master Gardeners, the Channahon School District, and the Channahon Park District to provide an educational and healthy learning opportunity for the children in our community. Students at the Three Rivers School start the garden in the spring by growing the plants from seed and then transferring them to the garden beds at the park district. Over the summer, campers participate in watering and maintaining the garden. Campers also participate in garden activities and make healthy snacks with the fresh produce. All are welcomed to visit the garden, pick a tomato or two, and enjoy!
