Nutrition, Gardening, Marketing and Sales Lessons at Youth Farmers Market

Youth Farmers Market outside the Habitat

Hmmm, do you see a "growing" trend lately with the blog?  Why, yes ---  check out this article from Colorado were elementary and middle school students (love the name of the group "Eco Possum") are participating in a summer internship program where they grow vegetables and sell the produce at a local farmers market.  In addition to learning about gardening, marketing and sales, the interns also research the nutritional benefits and uses of the vegetables!  Salad anyone?
