The urban agriculture focus will include backyard gardens, neighborhood gardens, larger scale urban farming, farmers markets and food security. Youth programs include the Green Team, which employs ages 14-18 after school, on Saturdays, and during the Summer; in projects that include environmental education and opportunities to work toward higher education or vocational tracks.
