Summer Program

Seed to Table

Working in collaboration with the City of Sacramento’s Department of Parks and Recreation, GEO youth lead a six week garden and cooking training for over 100 high school youth in the Sacramento area.  Youth from several neighborhoods, including Del Paso Heights, Alkali Flats, Avendale, Phoenix Park, and Oak Park, work together to learn how to grow fresh produce and cook a healthy lunch from the garden. We start the morning off with a fun team building activity, spend the morning on garden activities and end by learning how to cook a tasty, nutritious lunch. GEO youth develop excellent leadership and communication skills by leading this summer program.
