Life Support’s Community For Youth (COMFY) Project empowers young people to develop confidence in themselves, earn community service credits for school projects, and to learn and hone valuable life skills through caring for a real garden in their local community. It also offers an opportunity for adults to mentor young people by sharing their life experiences and modeling a responsible work ethic as they tend the garden together.
The LifeSupportM.org COMFY Garden is located in Novato, California and garden activities include learning how to compost, planting vegetables and flowers, doing art and journal projects, exploring, preparing and sharing meals together, learning how to listen and speak effectively, how to set achievable goals, how to make and follow task lists, and how to create good relationships – with one another, healthy foods, our own self, and nature’s bounty.
