Kansas City Community Gardens

Kansas City Community Gardens’ Beanstalk Children’s Garden provides nutrition and environmental education to Kansas City’s youth in a unique urban garden setting, using a STEM-based curriculum tailored to meet the needs of all learning levels. Children engage all five senses to experience the garden’s six unique areas: Vegetable, Fruit, Herb, Grain, Curiosity, and Water, tasting in-season plants and becoming inspired to grow their own food.

Students may explore the gardens on free self-guided tours (available on Saturdays) or through an organized group tour or school field trip. Home school groups can contact the staff for information on tours and education opportunities.

The Beanstalk Children’s Garden is part of Kansas City Community Gardens’ mission to empower and inspire low-income households, community groups, and schools in the Kansas City Metropolitan area to grow their own vegetables and fruit.
