Hear what past interns have to say about their time working at the Youth Garden Project.
The Youth Garden can teach you about growing food, educating our youth and making great friends, but above it all, it allows you to experience the process of creating a strong, place-based community from those who live it.
My experience at YGP helped me to discover my passion for environmental education. While in the Peace Corps, I have used YGP lesson plan ideas and gardening skills, and I can confidently say that my YGP internship made me a more successful Peace Corps Volunteer. When I finish the Peace Corps in May 2016, I will get my Master’s in Education with an Environmental Education focus.
Since leaving YGP in August 2013, I moved into environmental education. I am currently working as the Assistant Director at the Blue Ridge Outdoor Education Center in northeastern Georgia. I used my YGP gardening skills to implement a teaching garden.
I’ve learned a lot from my time here: how to teach in an outdoor setting, how to interact with students of all ages, various gardening and cooking skills. But the most important lesson I’ve learned from the Youth Garden Project is how to make a community.
