NSNP Youth in The Notebook

Youth from NSNP's Raíces de Cambio youth farm crew from the summer were recently interviewed by the Philadelphia Public School Notebook:

“In the community I’ve had the opportunity to learn a lot about farming, but at Ben Franklin I don’t really have any classes or activities related to healthy eating and food,” said Sebastian. “So maybe I can impact my school by bringing what I’ve learned there."

For Our Youth

We've put together a short video that showcases the hard work of our youth in the community over the past year. Help us provide opportunities for youth explore culture through, dance, food and art. Work with us to make our gardens grow and preserve them for the community. Please consider giving to support our work with youth and community residents in West Kensington in 2016.
