Urban Farmers in Training

Grow Pittsburgh, in partnership with Braddock Youth Project, Homewood Children’s Village, and Wilkinsburg Youth Project, offers a six-week employment and educational program for high-school aged youth each summer. Students are intimately involved in the workings of the farm from seeding to harvest, additionally learning about leadership, teamwork, and how their actions affect the larger food system.

The pre-apprenticeship is a program in partnership with Pasa Sustainable Agriculture for those who have little or no growing experience but are interested in exploring a farming career.  This is a two-year program, where participants will volunteer four hours per week on our farm sites doing a variety of farm tasks and receive a share of vegetables as well as free admission to relevant workshops and conferences.
