The Youth Farm Project includes local youth from diverse social and economic backgrounds as integral participants in building an equitable local food community.
Accordingly we :
-Involve local youth in growing, harvesting, donating, selling, eating and preserving healthy food.
-Connect youth to local and global issues concerning food justice and the environmental impact of our current food systems.
-Share inspiring responses to these issues which involve youth from around the world.
-Teach organic growing methods and their role in sustainable farming.
-Provide a place where youth from diverse backgrounds have the opportunity to come together and learn about each other and learn to work as a group toward a common goal.
-Help youth understand the relationship between the foods that we choose to eat and our personal health.
-Offer youth an opportunity to create something of real worth for themselves, their families, and community.
