About Us

Kids' Garden Club started in 2019 in Millerstown, PA, as a way to teach kids and families about health and wellness while focusing on faith. Now, Garden Club is available in Freeburg, PA to reach more kids and families across a larger geographic area. The goals of Garden Club are to teach kids and families to grow their own food, embrace creativity, grow in faith, and form community relationships. Each week, kids will participate in a garden activity, craft, game, and Bible discussion. Parents and guardians are welcome to stay and participate with their kids!

We are especially grateful for Alderfer's Lumber, who donated the wood for our raised garden beds, as well as the Greenwood High School students who crafted the beds during their shop classes.


Kids ages pre-K through 5th grade are invited to participate. It is recommended that kids register in advance by clicking the "REGISTER" button below. Younger kids who have older siblings in attendance may attend, but parents must stay with them the entire time.

Adults who would like to volunteer during garden club meetings must email criminal and child abuse clearances to shannonnicolemoyer@gmail.com and be willing to agree to CPYM's behavior standards.

Anyone is welcome to help with maintaining the garden throughout the season. No regular commitment is necessary, just send an email to let us know!

Garden Harvest

We are hoping to yield an abundant harvest of produce throughout the summer and fall in our Garden Club. Some of this food will be used in lessons and demonstrations during Garden Club, and the rest of the food will be available to the community. First preference will be given to families who attend Garden Club, community members are welcome to come to the Freeburg Community Center at any time and pick food that their family needs. Feel free to share with others you know are in need, as well.
