Overview

Cultiva! is a youth operated organic farm. Participants ages 12 to 19 plant, nurture, harvest, and sell their produce shares weekly to CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) members. Volunteer projects, gleaning produce from the Boulder Farmers Market, and donating produce to people who are in need in the community gives each Cultiva participant a deeper connection to their community. Hands-on experience and activities teach youth how to care for and protect the environment, operate a small business, and create positive change for the community, the environment, and themselves. Youth invest their time and energy in organic gardening and giving back to the community while developing their leadership and job skills.
