New Roots Youth Garden

An Eastern Shore Master Garden-sponsored garden providing opportunities for local youth to learn environmental stewardship, healthy lifestyles, social skills, community spirit, business proficiency, and the joy and satisfaction of meaningful work. We realize these goals by growing, eating, and sharing our harvest in creative, fun, and healthy ways. Volunteers lead activities and classes for the core program, help plant and maintain the raised and flower beds, and help run the farm stand or act as “teacher’s aides” for the core gardening program.

New Roots Youth Garden is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to providing experiences that help local youth develop personal growth earned through hard work, patience, and the rewards of gardening, as well as environmental awareness.

Located at the corner of Fig St. and Stone Rd, next to Rayfield’s Pharmacy in Cape Charles, VA.
