TG's children have sustainability built into their DNA. They are Nature's trusty little guardians, taking care of the vegetables in TG's award-winning gardens. From planting to watering to harvesting, the children see the entire process a simple vegetable goes through before it ends up on their plates as a delicious lunch. It nurtures appreciation and healthy eating. The children are learning something amazing all the time.
