Ithaca Children’s Garden

The Ithaca Children's Garden mission is to inspire, promote and sustain youth and community stewardship of the natural environment through garden-based learning and discovery. We work towards this mission in creative and innovative ways, inviting kids to be kids, explore, and discover.

What happens when you plant a seed, then care for it as it grows into a mature plant? Can you feed yourself? What happens when you compost your food scraps... can you grow more? What happens when you climb a tree? How far can you see? What happens when you work hard? Work together? Play hard? Play together? These are just some of the lessons children are learning every day at the Ithaca Children's Garden. With increasingly scheduled and busy lives, children's healthy development depends on having unstructured and safe access to the great outdoors where they can play and be kids. ICG is free and open every day of the year from dawn to dusk and offers extensive quality programming year round that is affordable and accessible to all.
