Junior Growers Academy
by the Urban Farming Institute
Learning where “food comes from”, how it’s produced, and how food makes its way to the farm or family garden, and then to the kitchen and table, are key elements of the Junior Growers Academy.
Our skills-building program is supported with a hands-on garden and a vertical hydroponic growing experience. Among other features of the program, our instructors will perform cooking demonstrations utilizing the plant products crafted by the on-location Academy “Field Station”.
Our students will be engaged in hands-on and group learning experiences which will provide a love for gardening and develop an appreciation for the environment, all while cultivating a greater awareness of the beautiful world around them.
