Established in 1995, Youth Farm has developed from an upstart garden program into a multi-faceted youth development organization.
We engage hundreds of youth across the Twin Cities in leadership development, farm and food programming, and community events. Alongside young people, community members, and partners, we are building a youth-led food movement.


We farm to grow food, community
and, most importantly, leaders.

Youth Farm has helped me grow as a person. The growing of plants and the growing of people is kind of similar - at first it’s kind of hard, but after a while, once you work with people and you are all working together for a common goal, you can really start to enjoy yourself.”
