Become an Emerging Leader

13 - 18 years

Have you always wanted to be a foodie?

Discover the science and politics behind healthy eating and food production. In our award-winning Emerging Leaders program, you will learn gardening and culinary skills through local urban farming. You will get to experience the amazing journey of planting a seed and see it become a meal on your plate by learning how to prepare what you harvest.

At the end of the session, you will prepare a meal to share with your friends and family at our Seed to Plate evening!
