Talk About Gardens!

For the 2021-2022 League year, Junior League of Lafayette’s Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS) Committee will become “Talk About Gardens!” This Committee will collaborate with LSU Agriculture Center’s 4-H Youth Development Program, Lafayette Master Gardeners, and LPSS to bring two new gardens to classrooms in the Acadiana area. This program is a year-long partnership between our volunteers and local classrooms. Our volunteers will help teach children about growing their own food and making healthy choices. This impactful program will help children form ideas about nutrition in a sustainable way, and it will provide other engaging opportunities, such as cooking competitions, throughout the year!
