In addition to volunteers, and CSA customers, we rely on contributions from individual donors and organizations to sustain our innovative earn and learn paid internship program for Saint Paul young people. Your financial support will help us continue and expand our opportunities for youth interns to participate in gardening, entrepreneurship, cooking, and conservation projects that improve their community’s health and provide enriching experiences that set them up for success.
For example, a gift of $35.00 pays for one week of healthy after school snacks for all of our interns and $100.00 provides one college access visit during the school year. With $1,000 we can pay a first year intern for the summer and $2,000 provides summer program wages for a third year intern.
