Youth Farm Apprenticeship Program

At the Youth Farm Project, young people are given the opportunity to develop a relationship with the food they eat and to consider how what they eat affects their health, community, and the planet. The Youth Farm Project, housed at Las Milpitas de Cottonwood Farm, hires Associates ages 18-24 to learn and experience the unique systems of urban sustainable agriculture, work alongside knowledgeable farm staff, help facilitate educational opportunities for the community, and to become strong advocates for a local food system.
