About the Wylde Center
The Wylde Center connects students of all ages to their environment, health, and community as
they dig into our programs focused on urban agriculture, health and nutrition, and environmental
awareness. As students explore our four urban greenspaces through our hands-on Education
Program, they not only learn the science of how the world works – they also learn how to care
for it through stewardship, agriculture, and personal wellness, while also learning teamwork,
responsibility. Public education classes and outreach complement these K-12 programs, giving
the whole community the opportunity to learn and grow in our gardens.
