King's Garden

Where Hope Grows

King’s Garden is the Horticultural Therapeutic Garden Program of King’s Home.

Our program goals are multifaceted:

  • Provide hands-on opportunities in gardening along with teaching horticulture lessons to at-risk youth living in King’s Home residential group home program (plus school groups or community tours).

  • Demonstrate the importance of producing and consuming fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs.

  • Teach horticulture skills for knowledge and application: how to plant from seed, harvest crops, and prepare healthy meals with produce grown at King's Garden.

  • Instruct on life lessons learned from gardening including work ethic, sowing and reaping, etc.

  • Train through entrepreneurial experiences (selling at farmers’ markets, etc.).

It takes a lot of love for a garden to grow.
