Youth Wellness Experience

How we work

At Still Rise Farms, our Youth Wellness Experience Program is a dynamic initiative designed to engage and educate children in a holistic approach to well-being. Through a series of educational activities, we aim to empower young minds by imparting knowledge about the origins of food, cultivating their own vegetables, and instilling the significance of healthy eating habits. This program introduces the concept of “food as medicine” and culinary medicine, fostering a lifelong appreciation for nutritious living.
