DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION:

FRIDAY, JULY 1, 2022

SPOTS ARE LIMITED!

First come, first served.

25 Northside / 25 Southside

For the first year ever, 

middle school students in 5th-8th grade

have the opportunity to participate in a 

FREE SUMMER CAMP

led by Teens Grow Greens interns!

This fun, hands-on, 4-day experience will:

  • teach participants about where our food typically comes from and how locally grown food is different (fresher, healthier, and tastier!) through gardening and cooking! 

  • immerse participants in activities, games, and discussions that develop their unique voices, talents, and abilities to become food justice activists in their own communities!

Did we say it was FREE?
