The GTA Children's Garden is a community garden with the mission to educate and inspire youth through hands-on gardening programs emphasized on nutrition. These programs offer an opportunity for children to learn about sustainability, leadership, and life skills, while serving as good stewards protecting our community and the environment. Established in 1999 on the lake side of the Traverse Area District Library's Main Branch (Woodmere), the garden focuses on teaching children, but is open to visitors of all ages for wandering and inspiration. Please come tour and enjoy the beauty of this public space.
