Our Leaf Out program is a “next step” program for students, ages 14-21, 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 at farmers markets, as well as donate to low-income neighbors. They also provide three or more hours of service to the community every week, tending local community gardens. Leaf Out is an intensive summer program, running June-August, meeting weekly, Mon-Thur from 9 am-noon (plus an occasional farmers market), with some “shoulder season” after-school days in May, Aug, & Sept. Participants receive an Achievement Award of up to $500, based on their participation and development.
