We're featuring SEEDS's DIG Program in Durham, North Carolina, "a youth-driven, urban farming leadership development program...[which] empowers teens by teaching organic gardening, sound business practices, healthy food choices and food security values.

The program emphasizes sustainable living and growing practices, ecological balance, and the natural recycling of organic materials for plant health and nourishment. DIG youth are paid a stipend to cultivate fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, and mushrooms, which they sell at the Durham Farmer’s Market and make available to [their] neighbors."

Major props to SEEDS for inspiring Bring Healthy Back! More at http://www.seedsnc.org/dig/about-dig/.

If you're part of a youth/food group or organization and have thoughts about the food justice movement, share your's today like SEEDS on our 20-question survey: http://liverealnow.weebly.com/shaping-our-future.html.
