This school year, the Educator Coaching Program (ECP) is working with garden teams from 11 schools across DC. ECP assists school garden teams by providing garden education and coordination support. Each team has three to four unique goals to accomplish throughout the year.

So far, some schools have established regular produce distributions to share fruits and vegetables grown at their school (and/or at Washington Youth Garden) with students and families. Other schools have used their gardens to host food tastings to celebrate their communities' cultures during Hispanic Heritage Month.

ECP staff also co-teach lessons about plant parts, soil, and compost with six of the teachers. This co-teaching series strengthens teachers' confidence and skills incorporating garden education into the classroom and curriculum. We’re excited to see the garden teams progress throughout the rest of the school year!

Thank you to the over 200 families, volunteers, and visitors who joined us last weekend for our Garlic Planting Party! With your help, we planted roughly 500 garlic cloves, each of which will grow into a bulb that will be harvested next spring. We loved seeing all the Halloween costumes as visitors also harvested sweet potatoes, created fall crafts, tasted fall foods, and more.

Since garlic is deer resistant, the cloves were planted just outside the garden's deer fence in new beds. Several volunteer groups built these new beds earlier this year — a monumental task that has allowed us to expand our planting area.

Thanks to a generous $2,500 grant from the Capitol Hill Community Foundation (), we recently renovated our Nature Explore Classroom. Certified Nature Explore Classrooms (NEC) are dynamic, nature-based play and learning spaces, designed to provide opportunities for children to c***ect with the natural world.

Originally installed nearly 10 years ago, WYG hosts the only certified NEC in the District. Our NEC is next to the Washington Youth Garden, and provides tools for visitors and groups to independently and creatively explore the outside world. The classroom has a sandbox, tree stumps for jumping, musical instruments, and a stage. We look forward to welcoming our neighbors from Capitol Hill — and all Arboretum visitors — into this classroom this fall!

SOME OF THR BEST LESSONS ARE LEARNED THROUGH PLAY🏃🏾‍♂️/ During GAP this past summer we started off our days with activities that built teamwork, communication and self development skills. Although many of the games were fun and goofy at time, the crew really gravitated towards it. This specific image is from the game Rock Paper Scissors Tag. Two team line up facing each other taking a center line. One person from each team plays rock, paper, scissors until there is a winner. The winning team must then chase and tag as many people as possible on the other team before the other team returns to their end line. Not only is this game fun but it challenges both groups to have quick minds and quick legs.

How do you determine leadership during your work projects? How can you make projects more fun and engaging?

SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER BUT THE HARVEST DOESN’T STOP🌾/ Today in the garden we harvested a bunch of different crops including beans, carrots, okra, tomatoes and even some winter squash. We also planted some leeks to grow along side our brussels sprouts and broccoli seedlings. Not only does this keep are beds full of life and color but it also will help to deter pest through out the fall season.

ITS PRESERVATION SEASON🫙 / Some of your favorite summer crops are going into peak season, some are even going to seed. But it doesn’t have to mean the end of your access to them. You can pickle, can and freeze summer vegetables like these peppers. And with a little patience you can even start to save your heirloom seeds🤗

What are some of your favorite veggies you like to preserve for the winter? For bonus points can you make 2 out of 3 peppers in this picture? 🌶🔥

OUR RELATIONSHIPS ARE OUR BIGGEST ASSET❤️/ We couldn’t have possibly had the success we had in this year program without the support of our Crew Leaders: Mariyah , James and Michelle. Between the 3 of them they have over 10+ years of experience within the green ambassador’s program. Not only do they teach the hard skills of cooking, garden maintenance and construction, but also the interpersonal skills such as: giving and receiving feedback or conflict resolution skills. The mentorship they offered to our crew members this year has a lasting impact whether they recognize it or not.

KICKBACK IN OUR POLLINATOR GARDEN🐝💐/ If you’ve been out to our space lately you might notice a few new seating arrangements out in the pollinator garden. Every year we do something by called a legacy project with our Green Ambassador’s. These projects offer some sort of physical contribution that benefits the garden and those who visit it. This year we did muralback and double planter benches. Although it took longer than expected, I’m proud of this year’s GAP crew for making it happen.

Here we have two of our Green Ambassador’s Laila and Chamon harvesting our kale bed before the heat really took over. We talked about the importance of harvesting your crops not only for consumption, but also to maintain the health of your garden.

What are some of the ways you maintain your garden during the summer?

Our Story

Proud to be celebrating its 49th year, the Washington Youth Garden (WYG) provides a unique year-round environmental science and food education program for local youth and families. To this end WYG facilitates its four signature programs - Garden Science, SPROUT, Green Ambassadors, and Family Garden Day. Moreover, WYG has grown into a premiere urban demonstration and production garden serving as a favorite destination for the local community, educators, special interest groups, urban planners and countless local, national and international visitors. Washington Youth Garden nurtures curious minds and healthy bodies by connecting youth to food, the land, and each other. History: WYG at the U.S. National Arboretum (USNA) is one of several youth gardens created in the mid 1960's to early 1970's by the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation in conjunction with the Washington Youth Garden Council. Their goal was to teach elementary school students in D.C. horticultural skills and life skills such as team building, cooperation, personal responsibility, self-confidence and environmental stewardship. Today, WYG has expanded its environmental education focus to include nutrition and cooking education to promote healthy lifestyles through gardening. Due to D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation budget cuts in 1995, the Friends of the National Arboretum (FONA) increased fundraising efforts and “adopted” the WYG in 1996. In addition to FONA’s assistance, WYG receives generous funding from foundations and individuals, and in-kind support from USNA including land, soil amendments, office and greenhouse space, equipment use and horticultural expertise.
