Southbridge youth are learning how to grow and cook, fresh and healthy, chemical-free vegetables. To help raise money to support the garden program, local youth will be selling the veggies they grew themselves at a discount price. In addition, more than a dozen community and health organizations, and craft and food vendors will provide health screenings, cooking demonstrations, local crafts, and delicious foods. There will also be free food, fun prizes, and live music, and SNAP/WIC will be accepted!

Southbridge Community Garden
Founded in 2011 by the South Wilmington Planning Network (SWPN), in partnership with the Neighborhood House Inc, SCG aims to provide local residents with the knowledge, skills and tools to grow their own healthy and organic fruits and vegetables. Garden members participate in free monthly workshops, workdays, community dinners, a popup farmers market, youth farm stand, and other events.

Southbridge Youth Garden Program
The Southbridge Youth Garden is an after school program at the Neighborhood House. An offshoot of the Southbridge Community Garden, the youth garden program aims to demonstrate, through hands-on learning, that growing healthy, chemical free vegetables is easy, fun, inexpensive and delicious. It also aims to develop small business, money management and entrepreneurial skills. These goals are accomplished through cooking demonstrations, farm visits, a monthly youth-led farm stand, and weekly garden lessons.
