Teen Corps is a high-impact, community-supported summer program for eligible teens ages designed to teach life and work skills through hands-on experiences in urban farming.

While working in a community garden to grow produce, and then selling it through their own stand at the Conservatory’s Farmers’ Market, teens learn about horticulture, the environment, health and nutrition, entrepreneurship, communication and self-reliance.

Applications and reference forms for Teen Corps 2021 are now open and due no later than April 30. Eligible teens are ages 15 to 18 who resides in the city of Columbus or is a student in the Columbus City School District.


Free Little Farmstand The Teen Corps Garden helps to grow produce for the Free Little Farmstand located at the Scotts Miracle-Gro Community Garden Campus.

Our neighbors and community members are welcome to enjoy the delicious and nutritious bounty!
