Our Mission

In 2019, St. Pete Youth Farm was established to provide access to nutritious food in South St. Petersburg, FL. We encourage leadership, entrepreneurship and career readiness to develop future leaders in our community.

Sowing Seeds — Growing Leaders

The St. Pete Youth Farm is a welcoming place where young people develop important life skills. This urban farm project encourages creative thinking and personal growth as students learn everything from growing their own food to financial literacy. Through this youth development program, we support the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs.

We meet throughout the week to learn and practice:
— Planting and harvesting
— Culinary and nutritional skills
— Entrepreneurship and business
— Communication and teamwork
— Leadership
— Character development
— Mental health and mindfulness
— Artistic self-expression
— Explore different career paths
— Resume building and job readiness
