GreenLeaf unites teens around gardening, leadership, and community
GreenLeaf, founded by the amazing Leah Bry right here in Denver, puts “growth” to use, growing everything from food, to youth leadership, to whole communities, with the mission statement: Cultivating powerful youth and food justice through urban agriculture. GreenLeaf engages youth representing Denver’s most vibrant diversity in transforming vacant lots farms in neighborhoods where fresh fruits and vegetables aren’t readily available. GreenLeaf youth come from working class and low-income backgrounds, many are from immigrant and refugee communities. GreenLeaf offers young people, ages 14 – 18, deep leadership opportunities, giving them the opportunity to earn a fair wage while they grow food for their communities, and they take on real responsibilities running the organization and its farms. GreenLeaf youth farmers explore and take action on the health, nutrition, and social justice that impact their lives.
