What is the name of your project or farm (if relevant)?

The Youth Farm at the High School for Public Service

Please describe your project or farm (if relevant).

We grow on 3/4 of an acre at the Youth Farm: over 80 varieties of vegetables and over 80 varieties of cut flowers. Our main focus is educational farming, using a production model as a training tool. We run farm trainings for youth and adults, including an intensive 7-month urban farming certificate program (the one I was in and lead now). Our produce gets to the local community via a farmers market, our CSA program, and multiple restaurant accounts.

Introduction

Hi, I'm Tari and I'm a Crew Leader at The HSPS Youth Farm in Crown Heights.
