Spread word about youth in the garden.

Spotlight on Gardening and Youth Education“Spotlight on Gardening and Youth Education” is a new feature in the ACGA e-Newsletter.  Each month, we will do an email interview with someone who is working with youth in their community gardening project.   If you are interested in having your organization‘s youth projects featured, please email web@communitygarden.org.

This month we talked to ACGA Board member Susan Leibrock about a new collaboration between the Sustainable Food Center and Marathon Kids to bring healthful cooking, community gardening and physical activity to children and parents in elementary schools in the Austin, Texas area.  Susan provided a recent article from co-worker Andrew Smiley from the Edible Austin newsletter on the project and answered our questions.

Over recent years, the city of Austin has been building a vibrant culture around local food, with connections to sustainable agriculture, community gardening, and healthy eating.  Susan is the Community Relations Director with the Sustainable Food Center in Austin.
