Longmont Cultiva Youth Project

The Longmont Cultiva Youth Project is a youth leadership program in which youth ages 14-18 operate a one-acre urban organic farm, growing food for the Longmont community while developing leadership and job skills. Farm Crew members work together to seed, tend and harvest organic produce for Growing Gardens’ Food Project, which provides fresh, healthy vegetables to community members in need. Throughout the summer, Farm Crew members deepen connections with our community by engaging in volunteer projects, and by gleaning and donating produce.
