dc.description.abstractCommunity gardens exist throughout Ohio and are associated with a variety of organizations. Little prior research has looked at youth involvement and leadership in these gardens. This study examined leadership opportunities available to youth and the types of skills learned through gardening. Garden leaders (N=71) completed an online survey about their gardens. Preliminary findings show leadership skills are encouraged by garden involvement. These opportunities range from selecting what to grow to making decisions about how to use the garden’s money to teaching others how to cook. Gardening provides an outlet to better develop teamwork, communication and critical thinking skills. Leaders should use a variety of ways to involve youth in more leadership roles.en_US
