TEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

Every summer we employ Ypsilanti teens to train as leaders within the local food movement. Teens learn about gardening and cooking on the Growing Hope Urban Farm with a train-the-trainer education model. Teens gain confidence leading garden and cooking lessons with youth, preparing seasonal recipes for the Ypsilanti Farmers Markets, and engaging in food justice discussions and activities.
