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 Sunday farmers market), with some “shoulder season” after-school days in May, Sept, and Oct. Participants receive an Achievement Award of up to $500, based on their participation and development.
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 March 1, 2019 for application.
