University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Brevard County Extension and Family Nutrition Program along with Brevard County Public Schools, Afterschool Program, 21st Learning Centers, have partnered to offer youth an opportunity to grow their own food and learn how to prepare healthy snacks.  The program is offered to schools throughout the county and allows youth to learn STEM in the garden and bring those concepts to the kitchen through culinary lessons.  Youth enjoy what they learn and what they eat too!
