Tours of the Market and Garden, designed for schoolchildren

Hollygrove Market and Farm is proud to announce the re-launch of its Youth Garden Tour!

Hollygrove aims to display and share all that goes on here at the market and farm.  The tour highlights an urban farm, community garden space, chicken coop and local produce market.  This tour is designed to provide students PreK-8th grade an introductory lesson on food systems, nutrition and sustainable growing practices.


By encouraging participating youth to sample herbs and vegetables, the Youth Garden Tour presents a fun and engaging , hands-on learning experience.

The tour is offered to schools, summer camps and youth programs at no cost and can accommodate up to 50 participants. Visiting groups are encouraged to provide a small donation if they select to receive a garden salad or local produce snack.
