At Grow Green, we focus on providing hands-on opportunities for youth to learn about the growing cycle, year-round. Just some of the ways that we do that are:
Youth entrepreneurship is one of the main components of the Grow Green program- It is empowering and exciting for our youth to have the opportunity to represent the work that they do in the community.
