Farm Pix: Grow Dat Youth Interns

Meet Amber, Deshawn, Melanie and Yasmin – our inaugural and extraordinary Fall Interns. Perhaps you’ve already made their acquaintance at a food justice speaking event around town, or on a tour of our farm. They come together from four different schools across New Orleans to grow food, continue to develop their leadership skills, engage in service, and advocate for change in our city.
