The Children’s Peace Garden Program teaches children environmental stewardship, nutrition education, respect for diversity, and creative self-expression to nurture a healthy, happy and well balanced child. 6,900 children from ages 3-11 participate in CPG programming.  Environmental Education Interns teach engaging hands-on activities about organic gardening practices, the garden as a source of food and how to prepare simple, nutritious food from the garden.

Summer Environmental Educators mentor the teens participating in the Cultiva Youth Project.  Interns help teach teenagers about sustainable agriculture, leadership skills, entrepreneurial and life skills while working alongside the youth in the Cultiva fields. 

In addition to teaching in the Peace Garden, Summer Environmental Educators are responsible for co-teaching in the Horticulture Therapy Field Trips.  These programs primarily serve persons with special needs and elders but we welcome all in the community.

Education Interns will gain hands-on experience and knowledge about vegetable production helping maintain the CPG and Cultiva fields.
