Youthlinks Farmstand

Youthlinks Director Kris Koerber announced that there are a few remaining openings for the June 30th – August 21st Student Garden Army.  This eight week program for high school students features a wide array of agricultural and culinary experiences including: planting seedlings, growing vegetables, maintaining and developing a garden, harvesting crops, and cooking and preparing healthy foods.




Kris Koerber shared, “This is a great way for high school students to gain leadership skills, make a positive impact on their community, and earn money through managing the farm stand sales.   It is a great experience that provides knowledge that will be useful throughout students’ lives.”
