We empower youth to build healthy, equitable, and sustainable communities.

To achieve this goal, we work with young people to develop farms, gardens, and other greenspaces to promote food and environmental justice while building skills to nurture tomorrow's advocates.

Everyone should be able to live in healthy, vibrant communities
Yet inequities in our food system and environmental policies harm our most vulnerable communities the most
our work

We empower youth to advance food and environmental justice while building skills that will amplify their voices, involvement, and impact around these issues

Youth Engagement

We work with elementary school, high school, and college students develop and maintain farms and greenspaces, in addition to delivering other hands-on experiences in agriculture and environmental sustainability.

Farm and School Gardens

We manage a 1.5-acre farm and several school gardens that are the heart of our youth engagement and community programs. These greenspaces are developed and maintained by the young people we work with, providing valuable hands-on experience. The food we grow goes back to the community, providing fresh, nutritious food to the areas that need it most. .

Our Farms and School Gardens

We’ve worked with students at a number of schools to develop and maintain a variety of farms and gardens. Take a look at some of our work below!
