TAKE A DEEPER LOOK

At GreenLeaf young people ages 14-18 earn a fair wage while they grow food for their communities and explore issues of health, nutrition, and social justice. Our diverse crew of youth interns drives GreenLeaf’s innovative and project-based curriculum of intensive leadership development and asset-based community building.

COMMUNITY

GreenLeaf youth grow and sell healthy food in Denver’s food deserts — neighborhoods without access to fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables.

FARM

GreenLeaf’s current farm is a 6,000 square foot plot of land at the Denver Sustainability Park (or “SPark”), where we share space with Produce Denver and Granata Farms as part of the Urban Farmers Collaborative.

TEAM

Youth Agri/Cultural Interns work 5 to 20 hours a week year-round on the farm, running all aspects of our food production and distribution efforts, as well as community outreach and canvassing.
