The Grand Traverse Area Children’s Garden was established in 1999, on the Boardman Lake side of the Traverse Area District Library: Main Library, with a vision to educate and inspire youth with the knowledge of gardening, nutrition, conservation, and the environment. Volunteers, led by Susan Kuschell, started the Garden as a sponsored fund of the Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation. Shortly after, the community expressed interest in a place for children to actively engage in gardening, not just to view its beauty. In 2001, the Learning Garden in Hull Park opened as a place where community volunteers, and thousands of visitors and residents, support gardening each year.
