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.
