Founded in 2019, the St. Pete Youth Farm offers a space for our community to grow food and grow as leaders. They've hired 100+ youth to grow and distribute nutritious food while gaining leadership, career readiness, and life skills.

"At St. Pete Youth Farm, everything we do is in support of the community we serve. We are humbled to have been selected as the 2024Leadership St. Pete class project." said Carla Bristol, Collaboration Manager at St. Pete Youth Farm!

"We're familiar with prior LSP class projects and the rippling effects their contributions produce. We know their ability to transform spaces, impact function, and better fulfill an organization's mission. Coincidentally, this project will be completed just before our 5th Anniversary, and will no doubt elevate the way we serve our community. We affirm the indelible legacy this project will leave for our teens and community!"
