Because it’s Fun!

Over numerous summers I’ve asked countless youth farmers “Why do you like coming to Youth Farm?” and nearly every single time the first thing they say is “Because it’s fun”.  I like to think of YF as way more than just a bunch of fun in the sun, it’s youth leadership, it’s neighborhood connectedness, it’s being proud of where you’re from, it’s personal development, it’s a safe place, it’s trying new foods, and it is exceptionally fun.
