Franklin Park Conservatory Teen Corps

Teen Corps is a high-impact, community-supported summer program for eligible teens designed to teach life and work skills through hands-on experiences in urban farming.

While working in a community garden to grow produce, and then selling it through their own stand at the Conservatory’s Farmers’ Market, teens learn about horticulture, the environment, health and nutrition, entrepreneurship, communication and self-reliance.
