Our mission is to design and implement food and garden-based educational programs for Delaware schools that support content standards and promote student health.
Our vision is to inspire and motivate youth to develop lifelong wholesome eating habits by experiencing the joy of growing, cooking, and eating garden-fresh vegetables.
