Reach ‘n’ Teach in the Beach

 

Seattle Tilth has welcomed two new youth interns to our crew at the Rainier Beach Learning Garden the month of April. The Garden Reach n’ Teach in the Beach program aims to build youth leadership and provide positive opportunities for youth to engage with their community.  Our youth leaders have been learning valuable job skills while getting paid.  Each week Reach n’ Teach leaders work with Seattle Tilth Garden Educators as teaching assistants in the after-school garden club and community center garden classes.  They are learning about organic gardening and composting while helping maintain the Rainier Beach Learning Garden.  Recently, we have been working hard to prepare for Earth Day at South Shore School.
