Green Corps is an urban agricultural work-study program for high school teens founded by the Cleveland Botanical Garden. For over 20 years, it has employed over 1,000 youth who work part-time in the summer at one of four urban learning farms in the Midtown, Slavic Village, Fairfax and Buckeye-Woodland communities.
The program teaches valuable job and leadership skills, including professional communication with the public at farmer’s markets, as well as life skills like participating in a cook-off and end-of-the-season career day. Through farm tours, community plots, educational opportunities and involvement with local partners, Green Corps has become a reliable resource for local Clevelanders providing fresh produce in an urban food desert.
Come harvest, mulch and manicure gardens at the Buckeye Learning Farm! Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and bring a water bottle. We will have some gardening gloves to share, but please bring your own if possible.
