Our youth are a diverse group of young people from high schools across New Orleans. They represent a broad cross-section of teenagers in our city and come together to grow food while transforming themselves and their community.
Our farm is based on core values of community, commitment, responsibility, hard work, professionalism, diversity, integrity, sustainability, respect, gratitude and celebration. All participants and staff work together to promote these values. We recognize that this work is both challenging and fulfilling, and requires us to hold ourselves and each other accountable.
