We have Funding for the 2019-2020 Grow Season!

Our Program will provide real-life paid work opportunities on a non-profit organic urban farm and tangible development of soft skills to twenty-five to thirty youth (ages 14-18) primarily from impoverished neighborhoods of Deerfield Beach/Pompano Beach so that they have improved future employability potential and entrepreneurship skills.  Through work-based learning experiences and real tasks, as well as linkages to a wide variety of community members and professionals (i.e., a CPA, an English professor, a Chef, church leaders, Cub Scout pack Leader, etc)  they will increase responsibility, work skills, and soft skills that will provide them a strong foundation for a career in any field.
