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.

Join Besa and Highland Youth Garden to support children in the Hilltop community. Besa volunteers will help plant seeds/seedlings, water, weed, and harvest fresh produce.
