Your support allows Growing Hope to educate and inspire youth of all ages around growing and preparing fresh food. Because of you, we worked with 330 youth in 2019, teaching them gardening and cooking skills as well as how they can more fully participate in their local food community. We provide programming for our young people that is not only educational, but creates opportunities for youth to grow as leaders and changemakers.

Whether it’s on our urban farm, at our Ypsilanti Farmers MarketPlace, in neighborhoods, or in the schools, our youth programs are fun, place-based, and encourage critical thinking. Alongside our many community partners, Growing Hope is empowering the next generation to help shape the future of our food system. Your continued support allows us to do this important work on behalf of Ypsilanti youth.
