Details:

The Highland Youth Garden began in February 2009 as two recreation centers closed in the Hilltop community.  Caring individuals began working with Highland Elementary School, Hilltop Prime Time, and the J. Ashburn, Jr. Youth Center to plan positive activities for the youth and the idea of a garden program emerged. In the years that followed, and with the commitment of many volunteers of all ages, the Highland Youth Garden grew to become a .40 acre community garden focused on children.
 
HYG was recently the recipient of a grant which will be used to build a hoop house. Join Besa, as we help remove a portion of their raised garden beds in preparation of the hoop house installation!
