About this project
The Green Teen program is a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County. Green Teen empowers urban youth to be effective agents of change in their communities by immersing them in the local food system. This youth development program teaches life and work skills through hands-on experiences in farming and gardening, health and nutrition, entrepreneurship, and leadership. We grow our own food, work on local farms, run a mobile farmers market, and make our own food products to sell. Last year we had to leave our “home” of 7 years and move to a new location. We do have one big problem- we don’t have enough space for all of our gardening supplies and tools. We want to be able to grow as much food as possible for our programs and we need to take our garden tools out of storage! Please help us get a new garden shed. We are estimating this will cost us about $2,000. If 100 people donate $20, or 80 people donate $25 we’re there! If you could help us fund this project that would be awesome. Please spread the word. Thanks so much!
