Sponsor a Youth

A donation of approximately $1,000 helps us hire one youth in our Summer or Academic Year Program. Help us meet the demand for our programs and hire more youth in 2016 (we had 85 teens apply for 24 spots last year)! You can sponsor a youth who will gain essential job and leadership skills, build bridges across diverse backgrounds, and grow fresh, healthy food for the community. Deadlines to sponsor a youth:

  • For the Spring program: March 1
  • For the Summer program: May 1
  • For the Academic School Year program: July 1

 

Sponsor an Event

Each year we hold several events on our farm that attract hundreds of visitors to our farm. Primary events include our Annual Fall Celebration Fundraiser and Seasonal Community Lunches. Join dozens of businesses and become one of our event sponsors for 2016. Below are the deadlines:

  • For community lunches: May 1
  • For fall celebration: July 1
