HRDF was funded by The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation as the Lead Agency and Fiscal Agent for an after school gardening program, entitled, ‘Ready-Set-Grow’. HRDF is partnering with the Bob Burdette Center, PRO-Kids, and the Girl Scouts Black Diamond Council to implement the program in Charleston, West Virginia. Ready-Set-Grow will offer activities surrounding healthy choices regarding recreational opportunities and locally grown foods. Students will engage in the 4-H Junior Master Gardener and the Girl Scouts Healthy Habits curricula, by utilizing classroom and outdoor hands-on activities. Approximately 200 youth, aged K-5, will be served by the Ready-Set-Grow Program. West Virginia State University Extension Services will offer technical assistance for the program.
