• Grow: trainees will learn to maintain a garden.
• Cook: trainees will work in a team to research and produce a unique salsa recipe.
• Sell: trainees will learn to create a business plan, package their salsa, create a brand, label their product, and then sell their salsa.
Upon completion of the first four weeks of the program, students will receive one high school class credit from Columbia Public Schools (Urban Ecology).
In addition, students will be paid for working hours for eight weeks of the program through the C.A.R.E. program.
