Frogtown Youth Farm at Jackson Elementary School
Youth Farm provides free, year-round programs for youth ages 9-18 who live in the Frogtown neighborhood in St Paul, MN. We reach 75 youth each week during the school year, and 40 youth each day during the summer. At Youth Farm, young people cook, grow, eat, share, and learn about food, all while developing healthy habits, healthy relationships, and leadership skills. Youth Farm's program at Jackson Elementary not only teaches youth about growing food, but also includes cooking, nutrition, and cultural education. Youth Farm offers after-school, summer, and in-school activities for students at Jackson Elementary, which makes the garden a valuable asset not only to the school, but to the whole community as well. Youth Farm uses a unique progressive program model, designed to offer new skills and opportunities to youth as they grow up in the program. Youth Farm culminates in a summer employment and school year internship program for teens.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
