Youth Gardens

This summer, rain or shine, youth at Chalet Kent are out on the rooftop to make a garden!

As part of this project, Education Makers and the staff at Chalet Kent are working with youth to grow and care for fruit, vegetable, and flowering plants. They are building plant containers and raised garden planters, programming soil humidity sensors using Arduino, 3D printing tools and decorations for the space, and building two benches.

This project was inspired by the youth who regularly use the terrace to hang out and chat and who wanted to create a green space to enjoy during the summer months.

Youth are keeping track of growth and learning how to care for various plants through internet sources.  

Stay tuned for more photos of the garden as it grows!
