Empowering Youth

FRESH works with young people to increase their impact in the community. We help youth find and develop their voice in order to create a more sustainable and just food system.

The Spring Program is going great!

This program is running for 8 weeks beginning the week of NLHS’ Spring Break (April 12th) and ending on the 31st of May. This year’s theme for the Spring is storytelling through food; the program will culminate in a final project where youth will be designing & planting out a garden bed inspired by a meal that means something to them. They’re helping run our two annual plant sales, enjoying interactive workshops around our theme, and more! There is a stipend as compensation at the close of the program. 

AND…Signups are now open for the Summer Program!

Youth help us grow food at our urban gardens. From seed to sale, they are involved every step of the way, learning about the wide variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruit that we grow. Crops are all sold and donated throughout our community. 

Leading the Community

We are committed to giving youth the tools they need to be leaders in making food system change. Our youth programs include opportunities to build and practice leadership, such as teaching younger children and advocating through public presentations.
