Growing Gardens, Growing Health

Fodor Farm Veggie BasketGrowing Gardens, Growing Health offers gardening instruction, nutrition education, and cooking demonstrations to Norwalk families. The program, which is held at Fodor Farm on Flax Hill Road in Norwalk, was developed by the Norwalk Health Department with financial support from the Aetna Foundation, the Elizabeth Raymond Ambler Trust, and United Way of Coastal Fairfield County.

During this program, families gain experience gardening vegetables and herbs, including container gardening and garden maintenance. They also learn new cooking methods through cooking demonstrations and learn nutrition facts and skills, such as national nutrition guidelines, how to read food labels, and tips for shopping on a budget.
