Through our programs, we build positive relationships with kids and teens in our community.
Local youth in grades 4-6 participate in a 10-week summer program in which they learn both gardening skills and nutrition education. In addition, they earn a weekly cash stipend for their work. Our apprentices hold a weekly free produce market for their neighbors, empowering themselves while educating others.
summer teen internships
Sproutin' Up offers summer internships at our farm and in the community. This program teaches teens first-job skills and connects them with other opportunities in our community. Each teen can earn up to $600 through their internship. While working with us, teens learn communication skills, work skills, resume writing, and much more.
philanthropic produce markets
Our free farmers markets were our first programs and they continue to serve over 50 families every week while donating over 4,500 pounds of produce. Run by our apprentices, this programs helps connect families with healthy, local produce.
