The Carole Landis Foundation has given a grant to Trellis for Tomorrow’s Youth Seed Enterprise.
The Youth Seed Enterprise is an eight-week summer program for teens age 13-18, in which they establish an organic garden, manage the garden and harvest the produce to provide nutrient-dense food to their community. They gain many important leadership and life skills, while earning money.
In 2019, the Youth Seed Enterprise program will serve 30+ teens in Chester and Montgomery County. The impact of the produce distributed will be far greater. Trellis for Tomorrow anticipates that the Youth Seed Enterprise will positively impact 60-100 households, including approximately 140-200 individuals, and improve the nutrition of over 3,250 meals over the course of the summer.
“The Foundation is excited to support the Youth Seed Enterprise for the summer of 2019,” says Carole Landis. “Trellis for Tomorrow has created a program that provides underserved youth with training and opportunities in many social, interpersonal, economic, physical and emotional areas as they nourish their own bodies and communities with healthy food. In addition, they are paid for their meaningful work.”
