SUMMER YOUTH FARM CREW

APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN!
DUE MAY 20

Are you (or do you know) a teenager in the West Central Neighborhood of Spokane looking for a job that invests in you and gives back to your community? At River City Youth Ops, we are looking for a diverse group of youth to develop leadership and life skills during an intensive, hands-on summer work experience in our urban farm program.

SUPPORT YOUTH FARMERS

THIS SUMMER: FRESH VEG FOR SALE IN W. CENTRAL

This year, we're bringing the market right to the West Central community, making fresh, locally-grown produce more easily available to our neighbors. Selling their produce at the market equips youth with customer service skills, connects them with neighbors — and most importantly, gives them the opportunity to show off their hard work.

You can support the market by coming and buying veggies, helping us spread the word, and volunteering.

Another Summer has come to a close, and what a great Summer it has been! From farmers' markets to garden parties, we've had a great time connecting with the community and mentoring the youth of West Central. We've achieved a lot of great things together during the harvest months. Now the days are shorter and the weather's colder, but we have some great things to achieve yet!

Summer Season in Full Swing!

Summer Season in Full Swing!

River City Youth Ops has reached some major milestones this year. For the first time ever, we have had a full time Farm Manager — the amazing Maddy Halverson — on staff. Among many of her duties, Maddy has been charged with developing a comprehensive curriculum that not only teaches job skills, but also works to recognize the needs of the whole person.
