THE STORY:

SUPPORT INTENSIVE GARDEN-BASED EDUCATION FOR SAN FRANCISCO YOUTH!

 

Dig in and help us support 27 under-served youth experience this unique summer program. 

 

In 2007 Garden for the Environment (a fabulous local teaching garden) and Urban Sprouts (a fabulous school garden-based education program)  joined forces to increase  opportunities for local youth to gain experience in gardening, leadership, health & nutrition, and environmental justice. Summer Sprouts was born. Summer Sprouts, a job-training and leadership development program, employs and trains high school students  to lead an intensive two-week program for local middle and high school students. Students leave our program inspired and educated to live healthier lives.

 

During Summer Sprouts students will:

 

• Cook and eat healthy meals from the garden every day

• Create and lead educational skits and presentations

• Facilitate conversations about healthy food systems, recycling, composting, and nutrition

• Build environmental literacy

• Educate peers, families, and community members on lessons learned during our Summer Sprouts program completion celebration

• Become skilled peer educators
