Youth Training Opportunities

 

 

We are building a diverse community of empowered, skilled and capable youth working to strengthen their local environment. Doing meaningful work in their own neighborhood cultivates the confidence teens need to believe they can make a difference.

Urban Farm-to-Market

For many youth, growing and harvesting food at the farm is their first opportunity to cultivate and enjoy food from seed to table. Throughout the summer, they gain tools for job success and community engagement. Growing produce and serving their neighbors at farmer's markets, youth learn the responsibility of caring for crops, the importance of careful planning for a continued harvest, and the power of locally grown food.

Market

Our youth training programs are youth-run enterprises! Visit the Wednesday Kendall Yards Night market and the Friday Emerson-Garfield farmer's markets to buy fresh, local produce directly from the youth who grew it. 

C.S.A.

C.S.A. means Community-Supported Agriculture. By paying in advance for a "Veggie Subscription" — weekly shares of our harvest throughout the growing season — you boost our resources at the beginning of the season, right when we need them most. Our C.S.A. runs from May-October — signing up early guarantees your share. Subscribe now to snag yours!

Wholesale

Our scattered-site urban farm grows more than 4,000 pounds of produce each season. We sell directly to restaurants and caterers — and your customers will love knowing their meal at your restaurant supports local youth.
