Are you interested in learning more about how to work with youth in an urban agriculture or school garden setting? Would you like to know more about structuring a youth development program centered on sustainable agriculture and food systems during the summer or school year?

The day’s program will include:
- Information on how to structure an urban agriculture/youth development program

- Planning and programming meaningful field trips
- How to foster a safe environment in which students of all abilities can grow, including implementing team-building activities, setting shared standards, providing student evaluations and feedback, and celebrating successes!
