Intergenerational Garden

Each month, seniors from the community with a passion for gardening and nutrition, spend time with the children of the Cuyamaca Child Development Center, planning, harvesting, and providing nutritious, locally grown snacks.

At just under a half-acre, the Intergenerational Garden project at the Cuyamaca Child Development Center is a place throughout the year where fruit trees reside in the orchard, pumpkins, melons, and squash grow on pumpkin hill and a variety of interesting vegetables are harvested in raised boxes that produce healthy organic snacks for the children and seniors to prepare and taste.

The mission of the Intergenerational Garden Project is to have an outdoor learning space where experiences occur that help prevent early childhood obesity through the Five and Fit program sponsored by the County of San Diego.
