HS students from New Haven farm vacant city lots, producing food that they then sell to local restaurants and stores. In the process, they learn nutrition, farming, marketing and teamwork! This paid summer work is a collaboration of more than a dozen New Haven-area organizations from schools to restaurants to non-profits. Over 15 students have participated in its first two years of existence.
