Mission Statement

Seattle Youth Garden Works empowers homeless and under-served youth through garden-based education and employment.

Description

Since May 1995, we have been training homeless and low-income youth in basic employment skills through the vehicle of market gardening. Participants work at one of our two garden sites, operate a small business, and further their education. Youth come to us from all over the greater Seattle area. Our program is designed to help these youth earn an income, learn new life and work skills, and link up to supportive social services.
