Youth Grow150x150Youth Grow is an online resource dedicated to helping youth in New York State to become food system leaders in their communities.  A sustainable food system is a system that cares for the earth and produces food in a way that supports economic, environmental, social and nutritional well-being.  Young people can play multiple and important roles in the cultivation of sustainable food systems: as consumers, as community leaders, and as agents of change!

The Activities for Educators page features activities that will guide educators to better support youth in their community food systems work.
