What it Takes to Have a Successful Teen Garden Program: Get into the grit and expand your teen audience! Learn innovative ways to authentically engage teens through your garden program from three Twin Cities garden program educators. These presenters will share stories, outcomes and strategies used in their diverse garden-based teen employment programs. This session will offer an in depth understanding of the roles relationship-building, collaboration, and community engagement play in engaging teens in this field, and will encourage participants to feel more confident in building unique and authentic programs of their own.
