Caleb has been part of the Youth Farm family for at least five years, and always brings his passion for cooking and dedication to teaching youth farmers. He is a great role model to the younger folks and supports them in any way. He is always having fun and being dedicated to the things he really enjoys doing.

In Lyndale’s Thursday Cooking Class he has shown that he is one of the best cooks in our neighborhood. He has great potential to become a chef. As a leader, his kindness and helpfulness makes new youth farmers feel welcome. We appreciate how Caleb has dedicated his time and effort. He is an example of Youth Farm: he helps everyone make their skills better and also cares about the land and what we grow.

This school year has been a great time working with him. This summer program is going to be awesome time to celebrate the help that Caleb has given to Youth Farm. He has made this place better through his skills in the kitchen, in the gardens and in working with our young people. Thank you Caleb for your great work at Youth Farm! We will miss you! Have a great time at college next year and we hope the best in the future for you.
