Youth Learning Center (YLC) is connecting with its surrounding neighborhood by launching its Connect and Cultivate Community Garden.
The center launched the garden July 15 with a celebration and open house at its location, 4471 Olive Street in the Central West End.
The garden space is housed on the YLC campus just to the east of the classroom building. Students will help those who adopt a garden plot by watering and caring for plants. Garden plots are 4-feet by 8-feet and cost $25 per year. Three plots are still available. Plot renters this year will get first choice of the plots next year.
