When the NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Program acquired the lease agreement to manage Atwood Community Gardens, it gave us the opportunity to provide a unique, non-traditional bundle of training programs that produce kids with a more holistic world view. We offer training programs in health and wellness, introductions to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) career pathways, cultural arts, social entrepreneurism and, of course, urban agriculture.
If you have a youth group that is looking to do something different, consider bringing them to Atwood Community Gardens. The outdoor experience will definitely help them broaden their scope and perspective on the impact they can make in their communities and their lives.
