About the garden: The Green Bridges Community Youth Garden is developed on the grounds of the Chapel Hill United Methodist Church. It is intended as a resource for at-risk youth. Volunteer mentors are paired with the youths, utilizing their extensive gardening experience and desire to encourage youth to thrive. Several vegetable beds, a greenhouse, and a small-scale fruit orchard have become the tools for teaching science, math, English, technology, nutrition, business management, food preparation, and other life skills. The Green Bridges Community Youth Garden pulls the community together and builds inter-generational relationships; it goes beyond growing vegetables to growing the futures of the young men and women.
