The Community CROPS Youth Program offers a variety of opportunities for young people to connect with growing, cooking and eating healthy vegetables.
- The Mickle Young Farmers Program is helping middle school kids learn about growing food as a business. Read more about the project in the Journal Star or watch coverage on Channel 8 News about the garden.
- At Prescott Elementary School, students are planting and growing a variety of fresh vegetables in their new garden beds.
- Sunset Community Farm, the CROPS training farm site, is available for tours by school groups, scout troops and others. Opportunities at the farm for kids to learn include seeing how vegetables grow, meeting chickens, identifying insects and much more.
- CROPS staff are available to present classes to groups of young people on gardening, cooking and composting.
