Students for LEAF is one of our focus educational programs designed to nurture young people's interests in environmental conservation, regenerative agriculture, and biological sciences. We want to develop the next generation of leaders to solve the many challenges we are facing such as climate change, food insecurity, and water conservation.

Students for LEAF is about growing food and much more. We create opportunities for young people using their inherent and developed skills, and interests to design and create projects for LEAF and for our gardens from art murals and videos to garden furniture and structures. You can see some of these projects in the images below, which include garden murals, solar beeswax melters, a Hugelkultur raised bed, recycling drive, bulletin board, to name only a few. One of the students produced a documentary about the importance of sustainability both locally and throughout the world.
