About Us

Youth development and life skills training through gardening and learning about the food system.

The Green Teen Community Gardening Program works year-round with Beacon and Poughkeepsie youth, ages 7-17. They learn about food, farming, entrepreneurship, and health through hands-on experiences. Participants grow plants and vegetables in their classrooms, on farms, and in community gardens. During the school year, Green Teen holds local programs both during and after school. See our 'Programs' link to learn more about specific offerings in Beacon and Poughkeepsie.
