Keeping Food Safe – Youth Gardening

Keeping Food Safe – Youth Gardening

Volunteers, teachers and those responsible for planning and implementing a youth garden will learn facilitator skills to teach youth about safe gardening. Participants in this program will be able to teach youth a multitude of gardening skills as they relate to what to consume from the garden, garden safety, protecting produce from contamination, weed control, storage tips for fresh produce and more.

This program is currently being piloted. Contact a MSU Extension food safety expert in your area to arrange a program.
