Little Green Thumbs Project

The Little Green Thumbs Project began as a community initiative. Michael Fields Agricultural Institute together with the East Troy School District, Walworth County Master Gardeners and the East Troy Future Farmers of America (FFA) created a place in the gardens to learn real life skills and foster community interaction.  The Children’s Gardens were planted by kindergarten and first grade students from Leona Doubek Elementary School and mentored by the students from East Troy High School. They planted the seeds together, transplanted the seedlings and interacted at will.
