Youth garden projects have great potential to improve gardening skills, access to healthy foods, knowledge of nutrition and cooking, connections between supportive adults and vulnerable youth, and engagement in communities. This presentation will relay findings from Producing for the Future, a community-based participatory research project involving low-income youth in Corvallis and Sweet Home, Oregon in 2011 and 2012. Project staff and participants from the Sweet Home garden in rural Oregon will discuss lessons learned from the implementation of the project, as well as findings from the qualitative and quantitative data from youth and adult volunteers.
