Spark-Y serves its mission of youth empowerment through three branches: school programs, an annual internship, and an urban agriculture lab. Collectively, these branches serve over 1,000 youth annually. Spark-Y imparts concepts of sustainability and entrepreneurship through hands-on projects such as aquaponics, vermicomposting, greenhouse farming, mushroom cultivation, and more.

Stop by the Friendship store Sunday, June 25 from noon-3 p.m. to chat with folks from Spark-Y Youth Farm and to sample their microgreens, spinach, and sorrel.
