Summer Youth academy
As a GRuB-inspired Youth Program, our goals reach beyond just growing vegetables. We use the Cultivating Roots garden to engage, inspire, empower, ground, and grow healthy youth in our Grays Harbor community.
Youth engage with and learn from the Harbor community as they develop job readiness, self-efficacy, home gardening, self-care, public health, sustainable agriculture, public speaking, and leadership skills.
Some of our activities include field trips to Grays Harbor College, Grays Harbor County Public Health and Social Services Department, local grocery stores and food banks, and the Evergreen Challenge Course; workshops in cooking and gardening; and community volunteering.
Registration information for the Cultivating Roots Summer Youth Academy can be found on Twin Harbors Skills Center's website.
