For Our Kids

For Our Kids focuses on growing flowers, growing fruits and vegetables, and growing a community of people who can share their love of gardening while taking good care of our small part of earth. Fun and learning is the emphasis and organic gardening is the objective.

The For Our Kids program is designed especially to introduce children to the joy and challenges of growing a beautiful and productive organic garden. Children learn the basics of good gardening and get to plan and grow their own plants, as well as participate in special group projects.


The East Texas Help Garden is a voluntary part of the For Our Kids project which helps provide fresh produce for those in need. These plots are assigned, space available, on a first come, first-served basis. The gardener will donate food grown on the plot to the For Our Kids program, local food banks, or shelters.
