If you haven’t been up to Marana to see the Community Food Bank’s farm, it’s definitely worth the visit. We are proud to have City High School students and alumni actively involved in this amazing community farming effort. 12th grader Aaron Howe followed in alumni Trish Gallegos’ footsteps this year by spending his senior year interning with the Youth Farm Project at the Marana Farm with Mentor Shanti Sellz.

Meanwhile, a team of four City High School students participated in the Youth Apprentice Program on Saturdays this year: Amanda Durain, Anthony Gallegos (yes – that’s Trish’s brother!), Tobias Hodges, and¬†Stephanie Hogan; and, last summer Nail Emmert participated in the Summer Street Team program.

Visit the farm with Tobias. Hear one teen reflect on his experience spending Saturdays digging in the dirt and learning about cultivating vegetables and caring for chickens.¬†Click the arrow below to LISTEN to TOBIAS’ RADIO STORY:
