Save LeConte’s Farm & Garden Programs!
What? Your child tried KALE??
LeConte’s Farm and Garden Programs have served as a model for the rest of the country for over 30 years by helping kids and families fight obesity while improving learning readiness, academic performances and engagement.

Help us save our Farm and Garden, a program that has proven health and educational benefits for all our children.

Consider how much you pay for summer camps or afterschool classes and then think about how much we value LeConte’s on-going programs.
In a true-hands-on environment, our children learn about science, math and many other subjects at the same time.

Last year we saved Farm & Garden every bit helps!
