The Youth Garden Project (YGP) is a non-profit organization in Moab, Utah with a mission of cultivating children, families and community through educational programs and the profound act of connecting people with food from seed to table. Our 2 acres of land includes 64 garden beds, a CSA plot, an orchard, a greenhouse and grow dome, chickens and rabbits, a commercial kitchen, indoor classroom space and several unique outdoor classroom areas.
YGP offers both school-based and out-of-school programs for youth using the garden as a teaching tool and incorporates interdisciplinary lessons into programs for all ages. Produce is grown using organic methods and then sold at the Moab Farmers’ Market, to local restaurants, to the natural food store and used in our programs. Learning opportunities are available to everyone including youth of all ages, interns, volunteers and adult community members.
They are offering three internship programs: garden interns, garden classroom educator interns, and summer camp instructor interns. These internships cover spring, summer, and fall sessions. For more instructions about dates and how to apply click here.
