Meet Dredd and Cornell from the Green Youth Farm in Washington Park and learn a little about what they and 22 other high school students did this summer.

Green Youth Farm is an urban agriculture program of the Chicago Botanic Garden, teaching students the value of healthy, local food and hard work and exposing them to careers in the rapidly growing local and sustainable food economy. Each Tuesday this summer, a crew from one of the farms cooked lunch for the other students in the program to enjoy together in North Chicago after a hard (and fun) work day.
