About

The Center for Supportive Learning develops modified STEM and urban gardening curriculum and learning opportunities within an inclusive service-learning environment for youth and young adults with developmental disabilities. 

The Center provides a place where youth and young adults with disabilities can pursue agro-entrepreneurship as a pathway to employment within the broader community.  The Center executes an Urban Gardening Training Program, the “Lettuce Grow Program” that teaches established, sustainable urban gardening skills within an adapted environment, using modified urban gardening curriculum, hands-on agro-business activities, and concepts written in plain language using universal design approaches.

Through service-learning, program participants learn alongside students with and without disabilities, community members, teachers, volunteers and garden mentors in an inclusive, collaborative, community garden network in the Huntington Metro area.
