Our collaboration with Schulze and Burch Bakery allows our Youth Program participants in the Bridgeport Program — a program that serves teens in Bridgeport, Back of the Yards, and Little Village — an opportunities for hands-on, vegetable production in the heart of the City. Teens in this program have space in multiple garden boxes to grow everything from tomatoes to watermelon.  This program in particular focuses on micro-enterprise development, and teens grow a variety of produce, herbs and edible flowers that can be dried to make teas, facial scrubs, seed saving packets and more to sell year-round.
