Cherry Street Farm & Lab

In Seattle we are currently updating our Cherry Street Farm Lab as a community hub with a youth development component. The Farm is located at 19th & E. Cherry Street on a former vacant lot on land owned by Keith Tucker’s family. Our paid internship program for BIPOC youth focuses on job skills, entrepreneurship, business development, STEAM learning, racial equity, food justice, and healthy eating. The youth also learn all aspects of growing food and preparing it through our teaching kitchen and cooking classes. Our program provides paid learning opportunities designed to build skills to succeed in the workplace, create learning opportunities that connect young people to entrepreneurship or a long-term career path (agriculture, hospitality, project management, green jobs), strengthen community, and support young people and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic. We educate and mentor youth to receive hands-on training and virtual learning in sales, marketing, event production,farming, cooking, project management and product development, preparing them for a living-wage career. Our program adds skilled labor and diversity to the Seattle workforce. Interns also participate in field trips and outdoor activities.
