Our Leaf Out program is a “next step” program for students, ages 13-21, who have been through our Youth Gardening Program. In Leaf Out, students fine-tune the job and life skills learned in the Youth Gardening Program by growing food to sell to local restaurants and donate to low-income neighbors. They also provide three or more hours of service to the community every week, tending local church and school gardens. Leaf Out runs end of March through the end of October, meeting 1-2 days per week, depending on the season. Participants receive a stipend of up to $500, based on their engagement and development.
Our 2018 Leaf Out Program is at capacity.
If you are a former Youth Gardening Program or Leaf Out student and would like to be considered for the 2019 Leaf Out Program, please check back in early 2019 for information on applying.
