Youth Urban Farm

Ambassador Project

-Funding provided by a grant from the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta.

"Empowering youth to lead food sustainability initiatives."

Building on a foundation of shared resources, environmental stewardship and community empowerment, our youth will grow into becoming substantial leaders of the necessary urban food sustainability movement.

Utilizing organic permaculture practices to work the land and grow and prepare food, our Youth Farmers will develop relationships, cultivate leadership skills, engage in micro-enterprise development, and organize neighbors to reclaim and activate public green space.

As a grassroots non-profit organization, TANWP is dedicated to empowering people to ensure their own sustainability. Therefore, with the generous support of The Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta, we have been able to create a youth project that will assist youth to become inspired, self-confident and community-minded through meaningful agricultural and entrepreneurial educational opportunities. 

Our program is a hands-on, experiential and web-based model of learning that links students with organic

gardening ,environmental research, culinary skills, nutritional education, culture, and entrepreneurial development.
