In this five-week long internship, youth tend and harvest their school garden to make a healthy lunch for themselves, explore the science of the garden and discover ways to make their community a better place to live. Each intern who completes the internship receives $100 to mark what they've learned and the contributions they've made to their school and neighborhood.
