The Youth Farm at Hilltop Urban Farm is in a competition to win $15,000 in the Nature's Path Organic's Gardens for Good campaign.
The Youth Farm features an orchard, raised beds, solar and STEM gardens.

They will also develop a through knowledge of garden ecology and learn about the nature of local and global agriculture and how these systems affect the environment, consumer along with local and global economies.
With this funding they will be able to bring agriculture, nutrition and ecology programs to up to 500 students in the Hilltop and we will expand our Youth Farm Orchard with berries, bushes and more fruit and nut trees
