Each year a significant portion of KGD’s outreach efforts and garden development support is aimed at educators, organizations and families invested in the health, wellness and development of children birth to 5. Whether at home, at school or in the community where these children interact and play, KGD works to create spaces and teachable moments for young Detroiters to develop healthy habits.
