Program areas at City Blossoms

Early growers - city blossoms uses a bilingual early childhood curriculum, first harvest/nuestra primera cosecha, to work with children ages two to five. It partners with educators to design age-appropriate gardens and programming to help participants make their first connections to nature and food.

Community green spaces - city blossoms provides interactive, communal, and children-focused gardens that transform unused or underused land into green spaces where youth and adults can interact with their natural environment and explore their creativity. Participants learn about ecology, urban agriculture, nutritious food, water conservation, and composting techniques.

Youth entrepreneurship cooperative - city blossoms partners with high schools to manage a year-round, garden-based youth entrepreneurship program. At the core of the program is a youth-led business called mighty greens through which participants combine elements of environmental and food justice with microenterprise and job readiness skills development.
