The Catskill Edible Garden Project works with schools and communities to increase access to healthy local food and promote educational efforts to raise awareness about food resources and nutrition. The project offers the opportunity for hands-on youth development experience and exposure to food and agriculture as important aspects of our community, culture and potential career opportunities.
The Catskill Edible Garden Project is a collaborative partnership among: Catskill Mountainkeeper; Cornell Cooperative Extension; Green Village Initiative; Sullivan Renaissance; and the Center for Workforce Development.
