Hustle & Grow

Youth Farm Management Training

This youth-focused initiative starts with 10-week spring/fall training (+ 5-week summer training) in sustainable urban agriculture. By being an integral part of the distribution process from start to finish, youth participants will learn the importance of stewardship and the impact that food access and security have on the health of their community.

Harmony Intergenerational Garden

Connecting all generations through growing fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers is the goal of Harmony Intergenerational Garden. This raised bed garden, led by Master Gardener volunteers, will reduce social isolation and improve connections to community, while growing a bounty of fresh and healthy food.
