Youth have the opportunity to cook healthy lunches in the kitchen, work with the farm team, and may have the opportunity to work at the farmers market. We encourage first-time youth to apply for this session. Previous Garden Warriors may also participate.
Garden Warriors Session II - Three Week Session
In Session II, returning Garden Warriors deepen their knowledge and improve skills from previous seasons. Youth learn seed saving and hand pollination. Youth also have the opportunity to cook healthy lunches in the kitchen, work with the farm team, and may have the opportunity to work at the farmers market.
