2007 ~ Food, What?! ~ A Youth Empowerment Program
From the early days of the Garden Classroom there were always visions of offering programming for teens. “Food, What?!” has fulfilled that vision:
“FOOD, WHAT?!” is a youth empowerment program using food, through sustainable agriculture and health, as the vehicle for bringing about personal growth and transformation. We partner with teenage youth to grow, cook, eat and distribute healthy sustainably raised food. These revolutionary acts serve to empower youth to realize their full potentials, to enjoy life, and serve as grounds for hard skill and leadership development.

In the Fall of 2008 News Channel 8 KSBW covered the “Food, What?!” Fall Harvest Festival, see the video: www.ksbw.com/video/17843746/index.html
From 2007-2008 1,000 teens from our region and across the nation have participated in “Food, What?!” programming.
