LGEG combines the interdisciplinary efforts of horticulture, nutrition, & health to address the health and wellness of children & families. It offers the unique opportunity for children to have hands on academic learning, grow and taste garden fresh vegetables, and encourages growing strong through physical activity.
Learn Grow, Eat & Go is the real deal! I am not aware of any youth program on the planet with the educational value on active living and eating right through hands-on, interactive, and fun learning. It combines agriculture, youth development, and nutrition into one fun-filled program. This is the ‘no brainer’ for counties to implement as an interdisciplinary program. More importantly, it sets up perfectly to be implemented as a 4-H SPIN Club. It is these types of efforts that will GROW the 4-H Program in Texas. Join the Learn Grow, Eat & Go Team and make it happen in your county!
