Our programs for high school students offer an opportunity for local youth to explore environmental issues and engage in backyard projects that benefit the environment and the community. Students can take their smaller creations home or give them to others in their neighborhood. Larger projects add permanent enhancements to the grounds at Goodell Gardens. Parents and guardians may choose to drop off their teenagers or stay for this program.
